DC Council honors Bryce Harper, Davey Johnson

Posted: Updated:

The D.C. Council has honored Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper and manager Davey Johnson with ceremonial resolutions.

Harper was honored Tuesday for being named the National League Rookie of the Year last year. Johnson was argued for his NL Manager of the Year award. The Nationals had baseball's best regular-season record in 2012 and were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs.

Harper thanked the D.C. councilmember who voted to build Nationals Park, saying it made his accomplishments possible. Johnson joked that the resolution should be signed into law because it got his date of birth wrong, making him 5 years younger.

Councilmember Jack Evans says Harper has brought great excitement to the city. He noted that Harper is on track to hit 95 home runs this year.
