What to Expect From Bryce Harper in His Second Year
From the time Bryce Harper was 16, everyone knew who he was. Whether it was him hitting 500 foot home runs at Tropicana Field while still in high school, or ESPN hyping up “baseball’s Lebron James” as they called him. A lot of expectations have been put up for the young Harper.
At only 19-years-old, it seemed unlikely that Harper had any chance of making the Washington Nationals out of spring training. But manager Davey Johnson said that if Harper performs, he could make the roster.
The Nationals were hit by the injury bug early in the season. Leaving them short on offense, the Nats called up Harper on April 27th. The young phenom had only saw a little over a years time in the minors, and was set to make his debut against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
I agree 100% with this blog. Being 19 is still a teenager, and being a teenager playing with grown men that are over 30, it's pretty intimidating. When you hit that magical number age of 20, like you said about Trout and his breakout year, Harper will break out, too.
