Quite some time before he was Rookie of the Year in the NL, and even an MVP, Kris Bryant was a star shortstop for Bonanza High School in Las Vegas. Yes, he played shortstop since he was the best player on the team. In the video below we can get a look at a young Kris Bryant. His swing looked great, and was very similar to his swing now. Plus, look at how big he already was in high school!
He seemed to enjoy playing with his high school team, and also wanted to be a dentist if baseball didn’t work out. Which is ironic, since he’s already got a great smile. Seems like his baseball career has gone pretty well so far, so it’s safe to say he will be a mainstay in the MLB for years to come.
