One of the first things Bryce Harper showed us as a Major Leaguer this year was his unbelievable cannon from the outfield. It was a tool that was so powerful that the team had to work hard just to get him to not overuse it and learn the value of the cutoff man. Descision making aside, anytime Harper rears back to throw, fans get excited. As a result, I'm sure than just a handful of you have wondered what it would be like if he were ever to take the mound. Fortunately, I stumbled accross this video showing his one and only pitching appearance at the College of Southern Nevada: http://youtu.be/6pfKXlLPGX0?t=4m18s   CSN brought Harper on in the bottom of the eighth with the game tied 4-4. He pitched scoreless first frame before gettng tuned up a bit in the ninth, but overall not bad for a 17-year-old kid who had not trained to pitch much all year.  To me, the best part of this video is how pumped up Harper is after finishing the bottom of the eighth without allowing a baserunner. Not many outfielders have the true passion of a closer.
