Bryce Harper: New Kid Swag
Thank God for the MLB, what happened in Vegas didn’t stay in Vegas. The No. 1 2010 draft pick (who stems from steamy Las Vegas, Nevada) Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is taking the Majors by storm at a tender 19 years old. With less than a month on an MLB roster under his sliders, he is more than living up to his hype with impressive performances on both sides of the plate. Yahoo! Sport’s Big League Stew reporter David Brown wrote,
“I recently made a half-joking comment on Twitter that this blog would publish a post about 19-year-old Bryce Harper at least once a day for the rest of the season, because ever since the Washington Nationals said they were calling him up, that’s what we’ve done.”
The baseball-centered portion of the site has scrolled the teen’s picture across Yahoo! headlines often — from highlighting his unbelievable arm rocketing balls to attempt the out at home to him slamming doubles against seasoned pitchers to making crazy barehanded catches in the outfield.
