Strickland And Harper Suspended, French Open Player Banned


In an emotionally charged game Monday night between the Washington Nationals and the San Francisco Giants, Hunter Strickland and Bryce Harper received 6 game and 4 game suspensions. Harper believed Strickland intended to hit him with a fastball so charged the mound and punched Strickland in the head. Apparently the bad blood goes back to 2014 when Harper hit two home runs against Strickland in the National League Division Series. Both players will appeal the suspension.


French Open player Maxime Hamou was banned from the tournament after he forcibly tried to kiss reporter Maly Thomas. Thomas said, “If I hadn’t been live on air, I would have punched him.” Hamou has since apologized for his behavior.
