"Where Does Nationals Player Bryce Harper Get His Work Ethic? His Ironworker Dad, That's Where" is a cross-post from AFL-CIO, written by Jackie Tortora.


Washington Nationals wunderkind outfielder Bryce Harper works hard.

Where does he get that work ethic? His father, a union ironworker from Las Vegas, who installs rebar on construction sites in sometimes extreme conditions.

Check out this clip from ESPN's "Bryce Begins." The entire special aired Tuesday night.
