The 2022 season ended in heartbreak for the Philadelphia Phillies, as they fell short in the World Series against the Houston Astros.
After wiping out the St. Louis Cardinals, Atlanta Braves, and San Diego Padres, the Phillies came to within two wins of capturing their first World Series title since 2008.
But despite the disappointment felt all around the City of Philadelphia following their loss, fans were still eager to greet their team when their bus arrived back at Citizens Bank Park last night.
One of the first players off the bus was NLCS MVP Bryce Harper, who wasted no time doing everything he could to make the fans happy, even taking some pictures and signing autographs for fans.
The Phillies are home!

Harper Greets Fans In Philly
Harper is a man of the people.
Fans in Philadelphia instantly fell in love with him after he signed a 13-year, $330 million contract prior to the 2019 season.
And since then, he has given everything he has to the City of Brotherly Love.
Harper won the National League MVP Award last season, hitting 35 home runs and driving in 84 while hitting for a .309 batting average.
This year, he fought through multiple injuries.
An elbow injury limited him to DH duties and a hand injury kept him out for two months.
But through it all, Harper is still a fan favorite in Philadelphia, fighting for a passionate fanbase day in and day out and even taking time out of his day to make them happy by taking some pictures and signing autographs.
