Where Harper, so used to the spotlight, focused more on the people he met and played with than the game results, Peacock made no secret that he took in everything about his first time pitching in a major league stadium. Asked he if he had any butterflies as he took the mound for the second, Peacock said. “Oh God, yes.”
But when it was over, Peacock could enjoy watching his newest teammate show off a little.
