Braves Fan Ejected For Heckling Bryce Harper

Last night in Atlanta, as the Nationals wrapped up the NL East, a fan was enjoying his ability to yell at players in person.  The subject of his heckling was Bryce Harper, when the umpire decided he went too far.

That's right, the home plate umpire ejected the heckling fan in the middle of Harper's at bat.
