It’s called “Bryce Begins.” Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post explains:

The film draws on MLB Productions’s access to the imagery and behind-the-scenes footage of Harper’s time with the Nats, and the hundreds of hours [filmmaker Jess Atkinson] spent with Harper and his family in 12 different cities over the past two years. It draws on a half-dozen lengthy sit-down interviews with Harper, countless casual encounters, and interviews with Harper’s father Ron, agent Scott Boras, high school coach Sam Thomas, teammate Ryan Zimmerman, [Cal Ripken, Jr.], Mike Trout and many others.

Sounds like it will be worth checking out. Harper, who doesn’t turn 21 years old until mid-October, entered play Sunday with an outrageous .373/.453/.783 slash line in 95 plate appearances. He is on pace for 62 homers and 122 RBI.
