Harper, a former Baseball America High School Player of the Year, has been featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated. The baseball prodigy has also been proclaimed as a future superstar in the sport.
"I have been using MusclePharm products for more than a year, and I fell in love with the brand after first being introduced to it," Harper said. "MusclePharm products have been certified to be used in professional baseball, and I know they are safe and effective because of that.
