Four days removed from the horrific shooting in Las Vegas, Bryce Harper continues show unwavering support for his hometown with the postseason on the horizon.
On Thursday morning, Harper showed up to Washington Nationals' practice wearing a #VegasStrong sweatshirt. Later in the day, he displayed personalized "Pray for Vegas" cleats.
In addition, Harper unveiled new cleats with the famous 'Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada' sign with multiple "Pray for"s on each side.
It is not likely that Harper will wear these cleats during the NLDS this weekend against the Chicago Cubs. The currently MLB rules do not allow personalized cleats to be wore by the players during the game.
A native of Las Vegas, Harper has constantly shown his support for his city throughout his career. On Monday morning, Harper released this statement via Twitter:
The pride of Vegas runs deep when you are born and raised in such a great town. I can't fathom the horrific event that has taken place! ... ...My thoughts and prayers go out to the families that have been affected by this and to all the people that have lost their lives way too soon! Las Vegas I love you and stand with you
Early Monday morning, at least 59 people were killed and another 500 wounded after a shooting on the Las Vegas Strip. For more information on this story here is the latest from NBC News.
On Friday the Nationals will host the Chicago Cubs in Game 1 of their NLDS match-up. First pitch is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at Nationals Park.
