(Bryce Harper's truck. Screen grab via video by AllStarsPlus.)
Remember when Bryce Harper showed up to his Arizona Fall League debut last year in his old reliable Toyota Tacoma?
Harper drove here from his home in Las Vegas on Sunday night. His father, Ron, followed behind Harper's Toyota Tacoma, the one he refuses to replace despite the odometer nudging close to 150,000.

Well, apparently Harper's Toyota Tacoma has been sent to the junk yard. The following video clip supposedly shows Bryce Harper's custom-built truck (with Vegas plates) parked outside Perdue Stadium in Salisbury, MD before the SAL All-Star game yesterday.
That truck is kind of ridiculous, huh?
Meanwhile, here's video from MASN: Harper talking to the media at the All-Star game about his first half-season of pro ball in Hagerstown, what he's learned, his thumb, his family, and how he "couldn't care less" what people think about him. So keep your comments about his truck to yourself, okay?
Bet you a dollar Harper gets promoted to Potomac by Friday. Save a parking spot at Pfitzner Stadium for his truck. On second thought, better make it two parking spots.
