Bryce Harper debuts Wawa inspired cleats

Phillies 1B Bryce Harper in collaboration with convenience store Wawa during its annual HoagieFest unveiled the “Gottahava Harper” player exclusive Under Armour cleats. Harper wore the cleats on Friday against the D-backs, which was also City Connect uniform night. The cleats are “inspired by his love for Wawa.” The bar code on the back of the shoe features “Harper’s favorite Wawa summer hoagie,” which is “reportedly his go-to stop before he heads to Citizens Bank Ballpark for games.” Under Armour will sell Wawa and Harper merch at Dick’s Sporting Goods stores in July and at Under Armour’s online store (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 6/21).

Meanwhile, a McDonald’s in Brighton, Mass., has joined the region in congratulating Celtics F Jayson Tatum with a message underneath the restaurant’s golden arches that reads, “CONGRATS TO OUR CUSTOMER JAYSON TATUM.” Tatum and his son have “come by a few times in recent months” (BOSTON GLOBE, 6/21).
