Bryce Harper, baseball's 2010 #1 draft pick, is LDS

 

True

 

Bryce HarperBryce 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 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. Look for this athlete to begin getting more and more headlines and becoming a very famous Mormon.
