John Smoltz talks about Hamels hitting Harper and baseball code
MLB Network analyst John Smoltz joined the show to talk about Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels getting suspended for five games for hitting Bryce Harper.
Smoltz said he doesn’t have a problem with Hamles admitting he hit Harper, but he doesn’t get why he hit him. He didn’t know the unwritten rule of hitting a rookie.
“I don’t know where that comes from,” Smoltz said. “Usually that happens after some history.”
Smoltz talked about hitting batters. He said that he’d hit three players in his career. Smoltz talked about hitting John Cangelosi and it ending up on the cover of Sports Illustrated (right).
