Let’s start off by saying this: Dexter Fowler takes this like a champ! When trying to breakup a double play in a game against the Giants, Fowler slid in a little higher than normal. The end result was a relay throw to the top of the head. Shortstop Brandon Crawford slung the ball at full velocity and hit Fowler square in the head.
Now this has nothing on the Brandon McCarthy incident, but it’s still impressive seeing Fowler walk away like nothing happened. All in all, Fowler might have just accomplished the most badass double play break-up of the 2012 season.
