The Phillies and their fans don’t appreciate trash talk from visiting teams.
So, what was Orlando Arcia thinking when he decided to laugh at Bryce Harper and say, “Atta Boy!” after Bryce was thrown out at first to end game 2 of the National League Divisional Series on Monday night in Philadelphia?

Atta Boy Shirt Origin Story:
If you saw the Monday night playoff game between the Phillies and the Braves, then you remember that it ended with Bryce Harper getting doubled-up at first base after some overzealous base-running.
Well, apparently Braves’ shortstop Orlando Arcia gloated in the Braves clubhouse about the error, saying “ha-ha, Atta-boy, Harper!” repeatedly in delight.
Harper said his teammates told him about Arcia’s comment. “They just kind of told me, and they looked at me, and they were like, what are you going to do?”
Long story short, Bryce Harper didn’t appreciate it and responded with two massive home runs in Wednesday’s game 3 blowout win in Philadelphia.
