Yasiel Puig Nails Bryce Harper With Throw From Right Field, But Umpire Disagrees (Video)

This is just too much phenom for one video.

During Friday’s Dodgers-Nationals game, Bryce Harper led off the second inning with a double. Jayson Werth then followed with a deep flyout to right field, and Harper, being the super-aggressive player that he is, tagged up and headed to third.

But the man on the receiving end of that fly ball was Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig, who unleashed one of his lasers from near the warning track that appeared to just beat Harper to the bag.

The umpire disagreed, ruling Harper safe, but the replay seems to show Juan Uribe‘s glove grazing the sliding outfielder before he was able to touch third base.

Was the right call made? See below to judge for yourself.
