The Washington Nationals held a news conference on Thursday afternoon to announce the signing of Bryce Harper. He was the first selection in the 2010 MLB Draft after an outstanding year at the College of Southern Nevada where he smashed the record books. As a high school freshman, he hit .599 batting average with 11 home runs and 67 RBIs in 38 games. He improved on that campaign in his sophomore season when he had .626 batting average, 14 home runs and 55 RBIs. After the season, Sports Illustrated labeled him as the “Chosen One” as he appeared on the cover of the magazine. They also called him the “Lebron James of Baseball.” He made an unorthodox move after his sophomore season as he got his GED and decided to head to junior college at the College of Southern Nevada. He continued to dominate at that level as he made the transition to the wood bat league hitting .442 with 29 home runs and 89 RBIs. In the first game of the NJCAA World Series, Harper hit for the cycle while going 6-for-7. The next day, he went 2-for-5 in the first game of a doubleheader and 6-for-6 with four home runs in the nightcap.
