Wallingford, PA (PRWEB) May 10, 2012
Sunday's game between Philadelphia Phillies and Washington Nationals proved eventful. However, the game left Hamels suspended after admitting he intentionally hit Harper, reported USAToday.com last Monday. The suspension is effective for five games, shared GreenBeanBuddy.com.
It was said in the report that National's General Manager Mike Rizzo called Hamels' 'hitting' as gutless and classless. Also, he demanded for action right after Cole Hamels confessed about purposely hitting his19-year-old rookie outfielder, the report added.
In response, baseball commissioner Bud Selig handed Hamels a five-game suspension, stated the report. In addition, the number 35 Philadelphia pitcher was also fined for an undisclosed amount, it added.
On the other hand, as given in the report, Hamels has this to say about the incident: "I'm just trying to continue the old baseball because I think some people are kind of getting away from it."
Here is part of the post Hamels Suspended for Hitting Harper in Purpose made GreenBeanBuddy.com.
“Baseball fans saw quite a game last Sunday. That's all thanks to Hamels hitting Harper. Of course, there are many other 'hitting' moments during the game. However, the encounter between the two Hs were much more noticed by the public. After all, it's not everyday that rising superstar Harper is nailed.
More than anything though, it's the confession of Hamels after the game that made baseball fans feasting on the incident. That's basically because instead of making excuses like the ball got out of his control, Hamels admitted that he intended to hit the 19-year-old outfielder.”
