Baseball Player Hits Self in Face With Bat

I don't know much about sports, but I do know everyone wants to see an image of Washington Nationals rookie Bryce Harper up to bat with blood dripping down his face.

Harper was having a bad day when he swung his bat into a wall — a day made that much worse when the bat ricocheted and hit him near the eye. Although Harper was bandaged at the scene, his injury continued to bleed through the bandage.

This has been Gawker's sports coverage for the day. For the actual story, try Deadspin.
