Bryce Harper's unprecedented ascent to the major leagues, from a 17-year-old first overall draft pick to a headline-creating, 19-year-old rookie center fielder for the Washington Nationals, dropped him into the middle of the best season of D.C. baseball since the Great Depression. Washington Post sports reporters chronicled each moment on and off the field, from his first press conference in Washington, to watching him wash dishes after dinner at his parents' house, to his debut at Dodger Stadium. Nowhere was his journey detailed better than in these collected stories from the Post. No one had ever seen a player like Bryce Harper before, and perhaps never had a rookie lived up so completely to his billing.

This newly updated audiobook from The Washington Post has the stories and the jaw-dropping achievements as covered by The Post, whose sports journalists have been there for the entire ride. Get your story of a legend today.

This book, compiled from Washington Post stories on Harper, follows his path from signing to the end of the 2012 season. Because this is a collection of WaPo stories, a lot of information is endlessly repeated. The reader will read more references to the College of Southern Nevada than they will ever see before or after. This endless repetition of information is the book's major weakness. Having said that, these stories taken together provide a primer on the 2012 All-Star and NL Rookie of the Year. For those baseball fans who live outside the DC Metro area, it is a great way to get acquainted with Harper. For $3, it is worth your time.

A nice light read giving solid if at times repetitive background information on the young stat. This book also provides some family stories. I only wish there were more athletes in this series from the Post.
