The NL's Most Talked About Rookie
We've heard so much about Bryce Harper of the Nationals. And having seen him play a couple of games last week, I'd have to agree with most of what's being said. He is a gifted hitter -- the ball makes that special sound when it comes off his bat. He also covers a tremendous amount of ground in the outfield.
The #1 overall draft choice a year ago, he's already a star months before he turns 20.
He's not just speedy, he's fast. Here, he beats out an infield grounder.
And he's a threat on the bases -- though here, he'd soon score on an Adam LaRoche homer.
