WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - Bryce Harper wasn’t happy he had to shave his beard off to get stitches, after slamming into the wall at Dodgers Stadium Monday, but legendary broadcaster Vin Scully was.

In a pre-game interview with Charlie Slowes Tuesday, the longtime Voice of the Dodgers addressed the vicious collision.

“The only good thing about it is it knocked his beard off,” Scully told Slowes. “And I was delighted to see … I went down to the clubhouse because I admire his play, and there he was clean shaven, stitches under the chin.”

Harper is still feeling the effects of his chance encounter in right field, acknowledging Tuesday he was feeling nauseous and “a little carsick.”

But Scully had more to say about Harper.

“But he’s such a fine young man and an outstanding player. And it’s none of my business, but I hope he plays clean-shaven.

Scully was disappointed he didn’t get to meet Bryce when he made his MLB debut in Los Angeles last season.

“I would loved to have met him then,” he said. “I’m grateful that I met him now. His first major league hit here was against Chad Billingsley, so I’m sure that this is a little slice of home for him. I hope so.”
