Stephen Strasburg’s warmup session disrupted by little girl

In what could have been a scary scene, a little girl ran across the infield during the Nationals’ pre-game ceremonies just as Washington pitcher Stephen Strasburg was winding up to throw to home plate

Fortunately, Strasburg was able to halt his windup, allowing the youngster to sprint by without getting hit.
