Nationals OF Nyjer Morgan Appeals Suspension For Throwing A Ball At Phillie Fans Head

For some reason, this story about Nyjer Morgan throwing a ball at a Phillies fan seems to have slipped through the cracks. You'd think this would be a major story? You can bet that if the Phils fan had thrown the ball, we'd have gotten the full blown national "They threw snowballs at Santa!" treatment.

Morgan had been jawing with a particular Phillies fan throughout the game and at one point threw a ball at him which ended up hitting another fan in the head. Morgan claims he was just tossing a ball to the fans like players do all the time. Major League Baseball didn't buy it and suspended the Nationals outfielder 7 games.

Morgan is appealing the suspension.
