SALT LAKE CITY — Major League Baseball All-Star Bryce Harper and his family were in Salt Lake City for 188th Semiannual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints this past weekend.

The Washington Nationals’ outfielder and his wife shared their experience, including photos of them meeting President Russell M. Nelson and Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, via Instagram.
