Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Trevor Williams could be a long lost cousin of Bryce Harper, as resembles the look of the star outfielder. It was at least enough for a server at a San Diego restaurant to think Williams was Harper.
Williams appeared on MLB Network Radio and detailed an incident while he’s in San Diego for the offseason.
Having dinner one night, Williams was spotted by a server who thought he was Harper. Williams played along and even told the server he, pretending to be the offseason’s most popular free agent, was planning on signing with the New York Yankees.

Williams added that although he wasn’t comped anything for being mistaken as Harper, he did receive excellent service, obviously.
