Lawmakers cheer Bryce Harper’s two homers on Opening Day

Harper hit the two home runs in a Monday game against the Miami Marlins. 

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) was in the ballpark in Washington during the game.

And Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) tweeted later on in the game that he hoped 2013 would be an "MVP season" for Harper. Harper, who is 20 years old, won the 2012 National League Rookie of the Year award.

Elsewhere on opening day, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) struck what could be a pessimistic note for Red Sox fans.

The Red Sox faced off against the New York Yankees.
