PHOTOS: Nationals Bryce Harper Set To Make His Home Debut

The Washington Nationals 19-year-old phenom will be gracing the outfield of Nats Park for the first time on Tuesday, for what D.C. fans hope is for many, many years. Bombarded with boo's during his first two games in Los Angeles, Harper did not let the negative perceptions effect his mind. The rookie has started his career 2-for-6, with a double and an RBI, but has honestly been more impressive in the field. On Saturday Harper showed off his cannon-like arm in left field, delivering a perfect strike to catcher Wilson Ramos, who unfortunately dropped the ball. On Sunday, in center field, Harper collided with the wall after making a full extension catch. As hard as it is to believe, the expectations for Harper may be greater than those originally placed on Stephen Strasburg. With the Nats on a four game losing streak, Harper's dangerous bat is needed now, more than ever.
