Bryce Harper tried to be a superhero on Saturday against the Twins.  He tried to hurdle the catcher after tagging up from third on a shallow fly ball in centerfield.

It didn’t work out too well for Harper.  He was thrown out by Twins centerfielder Byron Buxton by a mile and his hurdle wasn’t enough to clear the catcher. 

As bad as it ended up being for Harper, it could have been a lot worse for all involved.  Harper didn’t roll an ankle or blowout a knee and the catcher didn’t get his head removed from his shoulders.

Instead it just ended an inning in a one run ball game.  A game the Phillies ended up losing 6-2.
