The Pete Rose / Bruce Bochy Collision At The Plate (1980 NLCS)
With all the sadness and frustration around the recent Scott Cousins / Buster Posey collision, I found this image and video of the Pete Rose / Bruce Bochy collision from the 1980 NLCS playoffs. Although Bochy didn’t suffer a serious injury like Posey, the similarities between the two collisions are eerie. You’ll notice Bochy didn’t catch the ball either, was in front of the plate, and Rose also laid him out. Here’ the link to view the collision at the plate (about 3/4 way in.. you may have to copy and paste)
P.S. GET WELL BUSTER!
