Bryce Harper was 16 and played catcher for Las Vegas High. He was also on the cover of Sports Illustrated being considered the next “LeBron James” of baseball. He hit the longest home run in the history of Tropicana Field, home of the Tampa Bay Rays, and his blast of 502 feet would have gone farther if it hadn’t hit the back wall of the dome. In the 2010 MLB draft, he was the number 1 overall pick, taken by the Washington Nationals. He was the National League Rookie of the Year in 2012. He was the National League 2015 Most Valuable Player. He is a major league all-star.
He is also LDS. While in high school he attended early morning seminar every day. Wanting to be drafted into the MLB as soon as possible, he left high school after his sophomore year and went to the College of Southern Nevada and got his G.E.D. He still claims membership in the LDS church, even though he mentioned a hatred of BYU. When being asked about Mormon myths,he told a reporter that not every Mormon likes BYU.
