So Bryce Harper struck out against Nolasco of the Marlins. In frustration, he slammed his bat down on the plate, shattering it right in from of catcher John Buck. “I saw it hit and that’s why I kind of jumped away,” Buck said to reporters after Sunday’s game. “He told me he was really sorry, it was terrible. I told him, ‘Don’t worry about it. I did the same thing, but when I was your age it was a metal bat and I was in high school.’” Haha. That’s friggin’ awesome. Just like that… Buck put into perspective the media microscope that Harper is under. I can’t imagine all the dumb crap I did in high school sports being seen on SportsCenter every night.
