Brian Harper Not Wanting To Be "New Tim Tebow"

HarperIts often forgotten amidst the towering home runs, reckless injuries and clown questions, bro, but Bryce Harper is a devout Mormon. If its not brought up a lot, its because Harper likes it that way.

If somebody asks me about [religion], Ill tell them about it, but Im not going to be Mr. Tim Tebow, Harper told The Washington Times, referring to Tebows proselytizing and not his unemployment and completely inability to throw.

The 20-year-old All-Star quickly mentioned that he didnt mean that in a derogatory way. He spreads the word in different ways.

Harper didnt go on the usual Mormon mission, because he said his mom said he could do more good playing baseball. What I say is, I try to be the best walking Book of Mormon as I can, he said.
