Local baseball phenom Bryce Harper was the first overall draft pick by the Washington Nationals in 2010. Harper was called up to the big leagues in April, and is a favorite for the National League Rookie of the Year Award. The origins of his story are chronicled in the book "The Last Natural," written by former Las Vegas Sun sports reporter Rob Meich. The book follows Harper during his one season at the College of Southern Nevada.
