Scary Outfield Collision in Miami Leads to Inside-the-Parker (VIDEO)

Baseball Is Fun

Earlier this season, Dexter Fowler and Kyle Schwarber (the center and left fielder for the Chicago Cubs) collided in left-center field in Arizona, resulting in a season-ending injury for Schwarber. As a Cubs fan myself, then, I have grown particularly sensitive to scary outfield collisions … like the one that just happened yesterday in Washington:

In the fourth inning, Ryan Zimmerman smacked a line drive out to right center field, that started both Giancarlo Stanton and Marcell Ozuna on a dead sprint to make the play. Unfortunately, as you can see in the video above, that sprint was to the same exact spot and the two players collided.

Luckily, both players indicated they were all right after the game, which makes it OK to enjoy watching an inside-the-park homer (I just love those). Not to be outdone, Stanton hit a home run of his own – out of the park – two innings later.
