Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper and Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant have already won some prestigious hardware this offseason, but on Thursday they were given a prize that many people would be envious of.
That award was a key to the city of Las Vegas, where both players were born. The awards were presented to them by Las Vegas mayor Carolyn Goodman, and Harper shared a picture of the duo on Instagram with their prizes:
Both players had spectacular seasons in 2015, with Harper winning the National League MVP award thanks to his stellar campaign. He hit 42 home runs and drove in 99 RBI for the Nationals, and was a unanimous choice as MVP after the season ended.
Bryant also played some spectacular baseball in 2015, leading the Cubs to their first playoff berth since 2008 and setting team records for most home runs (26) and RBI (99) by a rookie.
