Kris Bryant, Bryce Harper To Be Given Ceremonial Keys To Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Two of Major League Baseball's hottest stars are coming home to Las Vegas for a special ceremony.

National League MVP Bryce Harper, outfielder for the Washington Nationals, and NL Rookie of the Year Kris Bryant, a third baseman for the Chicago Cubs, will be given keys to the city by Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman to celebrate their accomplishments.

Harper went to Las Vegas High School and took the College of Southern Nevada to the Junior College World Series in 2010.

Bryant went to Bonanza High School and won the Golden Spikes Award while playing for the University of San Diego.

The native sons grew up playing together and against each other.

The public ceremony will be hosted in downtown Las Vegas' Fremont Street at 6 p.m. on Dec. 17.
