Bryce Harper learns the purpose of the warning track

Washington Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper slammed into the outfield fence at Dodgers Stadium last night in Los Angeles trying to make a play on a fly ball off the bat of Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis. Harper went face-first into the scoreboard resulting in a laceration to his chin that required 11 stitches to close.

Harper didn’t suffer a concussion, at least that’s what the Nationals and Harper’s agent Scott Boras are saying. Watching a replay of the incident, it’s hard to believe Harper’s brain didn’t concuss even a little bit. I think I got a slight concussion just watching it.

Maybe Harper thought he was catching a train to Hogwarts. That actually makes more sense than not knowing what the warning track is for. Then again, although he’s a gifted athlete, Harper’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
