Bryce Harper learns a painful lesson about what the warning track is for

Blog Photo - Bryce Harper runs into the wallBryce Harper was tracking a fly ball last night against the Dodgers, and he completely ignored the warning of the warning track and plowed straight into the digital scoreboard on the outfield wall.

Harper, who is normally one of the smoothest fielding outfielders in baseball and makes everything look incredibly easy, was completely confounded by the outfield in LA last night.

Usually, when a player hits the dirt on the warning track, they realize that there's an outfield wall nearby, and they slow down a little bit, so they don't plow into the wall face-first.

Harper, not so much.

He ran full speed right into the wall, and will now likely miss a few games and spend some time on the "7-day concussion DL."
