Last night, St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina took a huge blow when blocking the plate from Josh Harrison of the Pittsburgh Pirates. There has been some controversy surrounding the collision because of the injury that Molina suffered and the possible malicious intent from Harrison. Watch the video and decide for yourself.
Personally, I think that there was some sort of malicious intent on the part of Harrison. He lowered his shoulder, possibly left his feet, and hit Molina right in the head. There is a difference between trying to knock the ball free to score a run and trying to injure somebody.
It must be something in the water out in Pittsburgh that just turns those Harrisons into violent people.
Share your thoughts on the collision in the comments! I'm very interested to see other views on the situation.
