    Bryce Harper in the locker room before Monday's Nats' game

    It looks like supporters of D.C. statehood have another famous supporter -- Washington Nationals player Bryce Harper. 

    NBC4 photographed Harper on Monday in a gray T-shirt with the shape of the District in red and the words "51st State." 

    Harper wore the shirt in the Nats' locker room before the game Monday night and the first of the District's three constitutional conventions.

    The New Columbia Statehood Commission will host events Monday night, Friday night and Saturday morning to hear residents’ input on the draft constitution.

    Mayor Muriel Bowser said the conventions will include public discussions of the draft. Anyone with comments can submit ideas until midnight Saturday, June 18.

    To see the full schedule of conventions, including their locations, visit the New Columbia Statehood Commission’s website.
