Washington Nationals’ Bryce Harper collides with Dodger Stadium wall, leaves game.

Watch video of Harper’s collision here.

Washington Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper left Monday’s game against the Dodgers in the fifth inning after hitting an unppaded portion of the right-field wall face-first.

Harper took a semi-circular route in pursuit of a fly ball hit by A.J. Ellis, and didn’t realize he was out of room until he smacked face-first into the scoreboard embedded in the right-field wall. Harper’s hat flew backward as he fell backward, and he remained still on the warning track for some time before Nationals trainers reached him from the first-base dugout.

Harper walked of the field on his own power. Ellis reached third base on the hit, which was ruled a triple.
