Stop Sliding Head First Newsbeat

Nolan Arenado breaks finger on slide

ATLANTA— Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado left Friday night’s game against the Braves after fracturing his left middle finger on a head-first slide into second base.

Arenado led off the second inning with a double to left field. Arenado’s slide beat shortstop Andrelton Simmons’ tag. The play stood following a review that lasted 3 minutes, 48 seconds.

The first organization to outlaw head first slides by their players wins a gold star from me.  And that review time is obscene.
