WASHINGTON NATIONALS OUTFIELDER Bryce Harper will think twice about running full tilt without watching where he’s going from now on.

The 20-year-old was fixated on a fifth-inning flyball from the LA Dodgers’ A.J. Ellis and lost his sense of awareness,  colliding full pelt into the Dodger Stadium wall.

Harper was left groggy and bloodied from the crash and SportingNews report that he needed 11 stitches under his chin. Apart from that, though, he’s grand.
