Not the first collision for James Cooper

While interviewing James Cooper after last night's 3-2 loss to the Defenders -- which ended when Cooper failed to jar the ball loose from catcher Jackson Williams -- it became clear that last night wasn't the first time he had been in a collision.

There is approximately a two-inch scar under the outfielder's right eye. This scar didn't come from baseball, or football, for that matter, although it could've -- he played high school football.

No, this scar came from well before Cooper ever considered a career in athletics. It happened when he was a baby, jumping from bed to bed.

"I was jumping between beds, and I missed. I hit my head on one of the bedposts, and now I have this scar," Cooper said.

With just three outfielders on the Thunder's roster, Cooper will get plenty of time to bounce back in the Trenton outfield and show off that bruiser's mentality that has taken him to this point.
