All making for some strange sights when baseball was played on the diamond this spring training day when Our Washington Nationals took on the Florida Marlins.
Ryan Zimmerman fell over the tarp down the left field line chasing a foul fly. A pop up that the wind took away from his drifting body--but not before the tarp flipped him head first into the railing of the stands. Thankfully, Zimmy laughed it off as Alex Cora helped him up.
What a difference six months and acclimation to a new society makes for this foreign born hurler.
Despite hitting a three run homer in his previous at-bat, it was nice to see Roger Bernadina bunt for a base hit in his next at-bat. Showing the flash needed to become an all-around player, Bernadina needs to use his speed and agility to complement his power and become that complete player.
For Washington, J.D. Martin didn't do himself any favors allowing three hits and one run in his sole inning on the mound either.
