VIDEO: UCF P Bryce Tucker Delivers Thunderous Headbutt to Catcher After Escaping Bases Loaded Jam

Bryce Tucker has the closer mentality

To say UCF lefty Bryce Tucker was amped up after shutting down the Miami Hurricanes last night would be an understatement. As you can see from the video above, Tucker worked his way out of a bases loaded, nobody out situation by striking out three consecutive batters — he promptly celebrated by pounding his chest and concussing catcher Logan Heiser.

We joke, but this alternate angle of the headbutt UCF posted on their Instagram shows the catcher was actually rocked:

Tucker has been fantastic for the Knights this season. He owns a 1.72 ERA and has struck out 20 in 15 2/3 innings of work.
