Apparently frustrated by his 0-for-5, three-strikeout effort against the Reds on Friday night, 19-year-old Washington Nationals sensation Bryce Harper injured himself when a bat he used to hit a wall struck him above the left eye.
According to Amanda Comak, Nationals beat writer for the Washington Times, Harper needed 10 stitches but didn’t feel dazed, and said he has no intention of missing a game.
Here’s a link to video of Nats (and former Reds) skipper Davey Johnson discussing the incident.
