The most anticipated return from a former player with a new team in MLB happened Tuesday night as Bryce Harper returned to Washington to face the Nationals for the first time as a member of the Phillies.

Harper heard more boos than cheers, but he was more than prepared for it and didn't let the crowd reaction impact how he played.  The former MVP went 3-for-5 and hit a huge home run with a monster bat flip as the exclamation point.

That was one heck of a bat flip and one that Nationals fans didn't really appreciate, but the rest of the baseball world sure did.

Harper and the Phillies are 4-0 on the young season and wrap up their series against the Nationals on Wednesday.
