Baseball phenom Bryce Harper, dubbed "The LeBron of Baseball,” is in Oklahoma City this week. While playing for Westmoore High’s summer league team Monday night, the 16-year-old was 6-for-6 with a pair of home runs and a triple. Harper, whose fastball has been clocked at 96 mph, also struck out the side while pitching an inning of relief in the nightcap.
The Las Vegas native can be seen at various locations around Oklahoma City for the rest of the week.
