KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — There were just 414 fans watching at Scottsdale Stadium last Oct. 27 when Bryce Harper and Mike Trout put on a show in the Arizona Fall League. On Tuesday night, all of baseball will be focusing on them.

Harper, just 19, is the youngest position player in All-Star history and a key part of the Washington Nationals’ transformation to a first-place team. Trout, at 20, is leading the American League in hitting and helping the Los Angeles Angels turn around their season.

On April 27, both were in the minor leagues. They came up to the majors, coincidentally, the following day. And on Monday, in another chance placement, they sat at the same table just over an hour apart as they explained their rapid rise from farmhands to fame.
