Michael Morse May Be Forced To Retire Due To Concussion Suffered During Harper Brawl (VIDEO)
This is a tough way for your career to possibly end.
Back in late May, tempers flared in the 8th inning of a game between the San Francisco Giants and Washington Nationals after Bryce Harper took exception to being hit by a pitch thrown from Hunter Strickland.
He proceed to charge the mound and benches cleared. During that massive brawl, Michael Morse had a violent collision with San Francisco Giants teammate Jeff Samardzija, which has him still suffering from concussion-like symptoms almost two months later.
That collision very well may end Morse’s career.
Michael Morse is back home in Florida. Bochy said he’ll have to decide whether he wants to try to get back up to speed or cal it quits.

“He’s (Morse) in Florida,” Bochy said. “He’s still recovering from the concussion symptoms so I haven’t talked to Michael in awhile but he decided to go back and spend some time home to relax and spend it with his family until he completely gets over this.”
Morse was hitting just .194 with one home run at the time he sustained his injury.
