Harper has been streaming himself playing Fortnite on Twitch almost daily during May, and it seems the 27-year-old sees a future in the world of gaming – so much so that he signed with one of the top esports management company Loaded.
Harper has reportedly inked a joint deal with his agent, Scott Boras, and Loaded, one of the top gaming management companies, to build-out “Harper’s gaming presence”, according to Sports Business Daily’s Adam Stern.
Bryce Harper signs deal with esports management company Loaded that “will include setting up accounts on gaming platforms for Harper and getting him familiar with how to stream properly.” I’ve been trying to negotiate a similar deal for my parents with Zoom.

Snell may need better backup here than a Bryce Harper telling the financially struggling COVID world that he doesn't want to make a few less millions during a video playing Fortnite. Thank you Bryce for reminding us how much you suck when you're not even playing ball.
