Bryce Harper leaves high school early, and it makes sense

A buddy of mine did this in high school…but that was only after he caved-in the vice-principal’s head with a suddenly free Master Lock.

It’s a shocking headline at first. But the most surprising part of Bryce Harper’s (or his dad’s) decision is that it makes total sense.

Harper, the Las Vegas high school catcher who was on the cover of Sports Illustrated, will forgo his final two years of high school, get his GED and play community college baseball next year at the College of Southern Nevada. His father, Ron, made the announcement Saturday at a tournament in Oklahoma City.

“Bryce is always looking for his next challenge,” Ron Harper told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “He’s going to pursue his education, too. He’s going to get pushed academically and athletically. I don’t see a problem with it. I think we’ve handled it the right way. I think it will be a great story.”

Harper will turn 17 on Oct. 16, and by finishing high school he will be eligible for the 2010 draft, where he is expected to be the No. 1 pick and command a multimillion-dollar signing bonus. (His dad says the family isn’t sure if Bryce will enter the draft in 2010 or ‘11. Take a guess which way that’ll come out.)

So he's looking to be pushed academically by going to a Nevada community college?

I'm looking to be pushed athletically by playing one-on-one basketball against Peter Dinklage.
   8. Tripon Posted: June 15, 2009 at 02:14 AM (#3219440)
Apparently, his older brother is transferring from Cal State Northridge to the same community college.

If he's the #1 pick he'll probably make it to the major leagues, at least for a cup of coffee.
   11. akrasian Posted: June 15, 2009 at 02:23 AM (#3219447)
Since there's no cost - I'll post in this thread for a piece of Lazzeri's action.

But I agree with Larry, barring a career ending injury he'll make the majors. Probably won't be a star, though.

Oh yeah, that was great. The best part was the article in the VERY NEXT WEEK talking about the failures of the many number one pitchers in the draft. Sure, the kid's baseball's LeBron, but don't forget how easy it is to fail tremendously. The best was when they compared getting Strasburg and Harper to Dwight Howard and LeBron James in consecutive drafts.
   17. Dr Love Posted: June 15, 2009 at 02:51 AM (#3219464)
Larry's right, if he's #1 he'll make it. Only three #1 picks have never made it: Steve Chilcott, Brien Taylor and Matt Bush. So I'll take that bet too.
   18. Darren Posted: June 15, 2009 at 02:52 AM (#3219466)
I especially like that we're being promised "$2000 bucks," or to rephrase: 2,000 dollar-bucks. That's awesome.

Strasburg and Harper -- Ford and Berra for a new generation.

(After nearly two-thirds of a century without experiencing a September pennant race, we in Washington have every right to dream.)

Strasburg and Harper = Gooden and Strawberry
   24. The Original SJ Posted: June 15, 2009 at 03:07 AM (#3219490)
I mean, the kid hasn't even had time to get his name out there, and there is already backlash. the backlash cycle is nearly instantanious now.
   25. Jim Wisinski Posted: June 15, 2009 at 03:08 AM (#3219491)
The kid better play that year of college ball while encased in a plastic bubble. This will all come crashing down on him if he tears up his wrist or something.
   26. PreservedFish Posted: June 15, 2009 at 03:12 AM (#3219494)
#25 - Declaring and signing his bonus ASAP would seem to be the best possible way to cash in on his talent and minimize the chance that disaster strikes

I mean, the kid hasn't even had time to get his name out there, and there is already backlash. the backlash cycle is nearly instantanious now.

I see there was at least one SI article about him, and this is the second article/thread I've read about him in the last week, that's hardly no time to "get his name out", and besides he's 16 ####### years old. If there was an article about an 8 year-old declaring for the NBA draft and he talked smack and his parents were hyping him and moving the family to LA because that'd be the one time the Clippers get the #1 ping pong ball, you'd see instantaneous backlash.

"The Backlash Cycle" would be an excellent name for a talk show hosted by our favorite Alabama hillbilly attorney and mock trial coach, though.
   29. Jeff K. Posted: June 15, 2009 at 03:29 AM (#3219516)

Well, he's the same age as Miguel Sano, who's about to get over $4 million (give or take for the kickback), right? I haven't seen you all get pissy about him.

I'm not entirely sure this is the wisest course for him, but if he has the talent...

Sano isn't likely to leave his DR academy until he's older though. And you know the DR, Sano might be 30 already.
   35. Jeff K. Posted: June 15, 2009 at 04:00 AM (#3219536)

This is just proof for all the people who criticize teams for exploiting Latin American players by signing them as young as 16 that many American high school players would do the same thing if given the opportunity.

Our society likes to complain that sports are making a joke of the university setting, but then wants to moralize these kids who go pro. He is already spending most of his time touring for baseball as it is, he may as well get paid to do it, and cash in before a possible career ending injury.

Just think, by the time we get around to payment, Obama's face might be on the $2000 bill. That'll be a nice collector's item.

(And, hey, if he goes to the Nationals, they're almost HAVE to going to call him up in order to avoid a riot in Washington. Count me in on the free scratch.)
   56. Rich Rifkin Posted: June 15, 2009 at 07:22 AM (#3219596)
that Jewish kid who was going to be the Jewish Jordan.
Tamir Goodman. He plays for Haifa in the Israeli pro league. After leading his original team to six championships, he retired from pro basketball for a few years to play pro baseball. Unfortunately, that did not work out, so now he has resumed his pro basketball career. The Jewish Jordan hopes some day to become a basketball front office executive. He is currently scouting for the Jewish Kwame Brown.

I hate when people write checks with their mouth that their ass can't cash.

I'll bet that I could write a neater check with my mouth than with my ass.

But I won't bet $2000 bucks on it. My colon might pucker in the clutch, and make the 2 look like an 8.

That statement was not for betting purposes.

Oh, and while I love money, I'd love it even more if the Pirates got a crack at drafting Harper next year (or in 2011, I guess).

With him being so young I wonder whether Boras will ask for a ML contract?

Didn't this kid look at the standings? He must be a Nationals fan. Or badly wants Steven Strasburg's autograph.
   65. Rally Posted: June 15, 2009 at 01:08 PM (#3219656)
I'll take Lazzeri's money too, especially since he didn't say anything about us giving him $2000 if he's right about Harper.

If the hype is all true, the Nats will be headed to the World Series soon. With Strasburg throwing to Harper, there is no need for any other fielder to even wear a glove since all outs will be strikeouts. (With a lessor catcher, you'd need a 1B since the catcher couldn't handle Strasburg's stuff). They'll be playing against the Wieter-led Orioles, and I would get to see them travel on I-95 from the edge of my neighborhood, but only if those superstars decide not to use their powers of flight.
   66. The Yankee Clapper Posted: June 15, 2009 at 01:48 PM (#3219699)
I'll give each of you $2,000 bucks if this kid ever makes it to the major leagues.

That should qualify as a unilateral offer, but some creativity may be needed to come up with the detrimental reliance.
   67. kthejoker Posted: June 15, 2009 at 01:56 PM (#3219707)

No way, the media doesn't care about subverstion of the glorious tradition of college baseball. College basketball on the other hand is big business, and how dare the players put in in jeopardy by trying to dodge their requisite period of unpaid serfdom?

Would it be in Harper's best interest to start using wooden bats now to make the transition smoother to the pros? Or would that jeopardize his asking for a kajillion dollars next year?

And yes, I am interested in $2000 from Nigerian prince Lazzeri please.

I'd take the dollar bucks as well, but the promise in question is pretty vague. If he "makes it to the major leagues"? It would be pretty easy to say that meant making it to multiple leagues is a prerequisite. And it isn't specific about which leagues he is talking about...AL/NL/Major League Soccer/Major League Lacrosse/etc? It does make me what percentage of players actually play in both leagues. I'd bet (but not $2000) that less than half of all players ever called up ever play in both the AL & NL.

Of course $2k will probably be worth $20 by the time Lazzeri has to pay up.
   89. and Posted: June 15, 2009 at 04:05 PM (#3219928)
I'm not worried that this isn't wise. I mean, he's missing a couple of years of high school. That need not be detrimental to development. If he flames out, he can go to college if he's academically oriented or learn a skill. It isn't much of a risk, IMO.


One thing that always strikes me is that almost no one gets a full scholarship in college baseball. So going pro isn't the same risk that it would be for a basketball or football player. Even if you assume the bball or fball player takes academics seriously.


And I don't take checks.*


Harper should hedge his bet and post in this thread. It'll be a win-win for him.

That's $2,000 in today's money, right? By 2011, that'll be about a half-million...

Of course $2k will probably be worth $20 by the time Lazzeri has to pay up.


You don't want $20 for nothing? I do.

Who cares about inflation? Something for nothing. I'm in.

I'm not above accepting money for nothing. Count me in, Lazzeri.

So, will this become the longest thread in BTF history?

What is Scott Boras' take on this?

Ask Jon Heyman.

And your chicks for free?

If a lawyerly someone is keeping a list, I'm in, too, on the dollar bucks.

Now, all seriousness aside, while this is no doubt a sound baseball decision for Harper, the last two years of high school ought to be about the two best years of a person's life, and I'm sorry he's going to miss them.

Also, I cringed when I got the SI with the 16-year-old next great thing on the cover. Terrible thing to do to a kid.

God, I hate hype. I'll give each of you $2,000 bucks if this kid ever makes it to the major leagues.


Lazzeri, I will gladly accept your $2000 if and when Harper makes the big leagues.
Thanks!

If he is as precocious a man as he is a ballplayer, he's been banging high school cheerleaders since he was in 7th grade.

Well, as long as he's not banging 7th grade cheerleaders, then everything is fine.
