Bryce Harper has accomplished quite a few things in his short major league career. He’s won the rookie of the year award, he’s been an all-star twice, and he’s helped lead the Nationals to their first playoff appearance in team history.
While he’s already accomplished so much, and he’ll likely hopefully accomplish much more in the future, Harper may be on the verge of another pretty cool accolade — but he needs our help.
Harper is representing the Nationals in this year’s Face of Major League Baseball competition, a distinction given to players based on fan votes. Harper absolutely destroyed the Brewer’s Ryan Braun in the first round, but things aren’t looking too great for the 21-year-old in Round 2. As of now, Harper trails the Dodger’s Clayton Kershaw, who has received 57 percent of the vote thus far.
While he has a lot of ground to make up against arguably the best player in the game, there’s still time to put him on top! All you have to do to submit your vote is tweet the hashtags #BRYCEHARPER and #FACEOFMLB in the same tweet. You can do this up to 25 times until 8 a.m. Tuesday morning. So get on Twitter, and go crazy!
