The teenage phenom, and as of tonight, reigning NL Rookie of the Year Bryce Harper has taken over Washington, DC. Harper helped take the Nats to the 2012 playoffs by hitting 22 bombs and driving in 80 runs in less than a full season in his debut campaign in the bigs. Though his margin of victory over fellow rookies Todd Frazier and Wade Miley wasn't the runaway win that AL ROY Mike Trout saw, his title is still valued the same.
For a while now, the question has been pouring in as to who is Bryce Harper's girlfriend. Thanks to the social media campaign pushed by MLB, Harper joined Twitter and answered the question for us all. Bryce Harper's girlfriend Kayla Varner also hails from Bryce's hometown of Las Vegas, NV and is now a sophomore at BYU, where she also plays soccer.
Impressively enough, both Harper and Varner were able to keep the news quiet for quite a while. Considering the amount of attention Bryce Harper gathers throughout DC, and how badly people have wanted to know exactly who he's dating, this feat is especially impressive. The two regularly tweet at, or retweet to one another, so if this relationship has a shorter shelf life, we'll certainly watch it unravel. Good luck to the two kids here,... this has to be one of the most challenging long distance relationships we could imagine.Bryce Harper's girlfriend Kayla Varner,
