There’s nothing like a good basebrawl, and we got one in Monday’s game between the San Francisco Giants and the Washington Nationals. Giants pitcher Hunter Strickland threw a fastball that drilled Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper right in the hip. Harper and Strickland started jawing right after this happened, and a split second later, it was on.
The brawl started with Harper busting out one of the worst helmet throws we’ve ever seen. Either he wasn’t trying to hit Strickland, the helmet slipped out of his hand, or Harper is just not especially great at using a baseball helmet at a weapon.
