Mr. Harper Goes to Washington
He is here. With the Nationals already making headlines with their hot start to the 2012 season, perhaps the biggest splash of the year will be this weekend, as top prospect Bryce Harper will make his much-anticipated debut. The 19 year-old, who was the first overall pick in the 2010 First-Year Player Draft, will join the team on Saturday in Los Angeles. Harper is scheduled to make his home debut when the Nationals return to D.C. to take on the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday, May 1.
There will be plenty more to come throughout the weekend, but this much is certain: the future is now in Washington D.C.
