BaseballAmerica.com: Draft: Early Draft Preview: Draft Q&A: Bryce Harper:
"Q: What players in the big leagues to you look up to?
A: I like Robinson Cano a lot. He's a great hitter. That's why I like him. I love his swing. He has one of the prettiest swings in baseball. I like Josh Hamilton. I love Joe Mauer. Back in the day, I love Mickey Mantle, Pete Rose, George Brett. Growing up, my dad was a huge Reds fan. I look up to all the older players, how they played the game."
Very humanizing interview.
