Bryce Harper doesn't support moving the Oakland Athletics to Las Vegas.
The Philadelphia Phillies superstar and Las Vegas native believes the Athletics' potential relocation would be a major loss for baseball.
"I feel sorry for the fans in Oakland," Harper said, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale. "It's just not right. They have so much history in Oakland. You're taking a team out of a city. I'm pretty sad because of all of the history and all of the greatness they've seen there. I see the A's as Oakland. I don't see them as Vegas."
The Nevada Legislature approved public funding Wednesday for a portion of the Athletics' proposed $1.5-billion ballpark. The deal still needs the governor's signature and Major League Baseball must green-light the move. The Athletics plan to build a 30,000-seat stadium along the Las Vegas Strip.
Harper isn't sold on the idea.
