MLB debuts are special for young players.
They’ll remember the first time they stepped foot on a Major League field for the rest of their lives.
For some players, a debut serves as a kick-starter for what is to come.
Bryce Harper has had himself a nice career so far.
The Philadelphia Phillies’ slugger has himself two MVP Awards, a Rookie of the Year Award, and six All-Star selections.
With players who are that good, fans may sometimes forget that these stars were once young and inexperienced.
But today marks the 10-year anniversary of Harper’s big-league debut with the Washington Nationals.
10 years ago today, @bryceharper3 made his MLB debut at 19 years old 💪

Ten Years Already?
It’s hard to believe it’s been that long since Harper came up to the big leagues.
Life moves quickly, especially in baseball.
It almost feels like it was just yesterday that Harper walked onto a big-league field for the very first time.
Ten years later, he’s got a lot of hardware to his name.
If we didn’t know then what was to come, we found out soon enough.
And he was only 19 years old when he made his debut!
He’s been around a long time and is still only 29 today.
It’s very rare for a player to see the big leagues at such a young age, but Harper proved to be something special right from the start.
His power and speed were rivaled by few in the league.
That is still the case today.
But on this special day, Harper celebrates the 10-year anniversary of his first big league game with the Nationals.
It’s still hard to believe it has been that long, but time sure flies, even in baseball.
