Justin Morneau is swinging the bat like he did before concussions derailed his career four years ago.

Morneau's troubles began when he suffered a concussion sliding into second base in Toronto in 2010.

And on a May afternoon at Coors Field, hours before the Rockies would lose to the Padres, there is Morneau, helmet atop head, just in case. He takes a few cracks, then advances: first base, second base, third ... home. There's no reason to stop anymore, no tradition to uphold. Maybe that's a little sad -- or maybe not, because it means he's is still rounding those bases, dusty cleats marking each one in case it's his last.
