Johnny Bench

I Dare You To Run Me Over!!!

EXCLUSIVE

022514_johnny_bench_launchJohnny Bench tells TMZ Sports he fully SUPPORTS the new anti-collision rule in the MLB -- but that doesn't make him a wuss.  In fact, Johnny says he's still tough as nails ... and he's willing to prove it.

Johnny was out in D.C. Tuesday when he dropped some serious collision knowledge -- comparing speeding base runners to MISSILES who can seriously injure a catcher.

But when we asked if he still considered catchers "tough" -- the 66-year-old Hall of Famer challenged our guy to a collision right there on the spot.

Seriously, we're lucky our guy walked away in one piece.

One of the greatest catchers of all time. Had his 1976 all star card when I was younger.
