Las Vegas natives Kris Bryant, Bryce Harper work together to help victims

Las Vegas natives Kris Bryant, Bryce Harper work together to help victims”

"Just from talking to friends, talking to family that were definitely at the concert and seeing the things that have happened and transpired from that, it just goes to show how strong our community is in Vegas, how much of a small-knit community it can be".

Bryce Harper and Kris Bryant, two of baseball's biggest stars, appeared together in a public service announcement Friday aimed at aiding the victims of Sunday's mass shooting in Las Vegas, the deadliest in modern US history.

"You don't want to see it happen to your hometown, but it's been unbelievable to see the people in the community come out and help", Bryant told ESPN. "I don't know if I've ever seen a response like that". That's how it is when you're from there.

- As Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper looks to help his team's postseason push to the World Series, his hometown of Las Vegas remains on his mind after the deadly shooting attack that left 58 people dead and more than 500 injured.

"In the NLDS, and the platform we have, the PSA was an easy thing to do", Bryant said.

According to ESPN's report, it was Harper's idea for the pair to shoot the video together. "We wanted to help out in any way we can".

It's definitely affected him, but he's finding comfort in how his community has come together to help each other in the days since the tragedy. "Whatever we can to get people to support, we're ready to do".

"You don't want to see it happen to your hometown, but it's been incredible to see the people in the community come out and help", Bryant said. Harper hasn't revealed whether or not he'll wear them during the NLDS, but a guy like Harper doesn't have those cleats made just so they can sit on a shelf.

"Everybody's pulling on the same rope trying to help anybody they can", Harper said.
