This May 25, 2011, file photo shows Florida Marlins baserunner Scott Cousins, left, colliding with San Francisco Giants catcher and Leesburg native Buster Posey during a play at the plate the 12th inning of their game last year in San Francisco. Posey knows the day will come when he again has to step toward the third-base line, watch a charging runner trying to score and brace himself for a collision. And it may even come tonight when the two teams meet at AT&T Park for the first time since the incident, which broke Posey’s left fibula, tore three tendons in his ankle and ended his sophomore season a little more than six months after his National League Rookie of the Year honor and World Series win.

The Miami Marlins return to San Francisco tonight for the first time in almost a year since last season’s home-plate collision between the Marlins’ Scott Cousins and the Giants’ Buster Posey that knocked Posey out for the final two-thirds of San Francisco’s 2011 campaign.
