Atlanta Braves pitcher Tim Hudson has only three home runs in his career, and his most recent big fly may not have made its way into the stands without a little help from Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper. During the bottom of the fifth inning on Tuesday night, the 37-year-old Hudson proved that he still has the strength to send a ball a long way to the opposite field. The ball may have had the distance to get out on its own, but it appeared Harper gave it some assistance when he leaped and almost made a spectacular grab at the wall. Instead, it went off his glove and into the stands. Harper certainly isn’t the first player to have a ball go off his glove and over the wall (see: Swisher, Nick). If anything, he can consider it a good deed. The Nationals were already in a pretty big hole at that point and he made an old man happy.
