This Johnson kid just will not stop hitting. Over his last 18 games, Johnson is hitting .379 with five homers and 14 RBI to solidify his spot in the everyday lineup for the A's. What makes this performance even more impressive is the fact that Johnson hit only .234 with nine homers last year because of vision problems caused by an accident where he shot suntan lotion in his eye. He is obviously fully recovered from that.
What are some other famous/bad/funny baseball accidents that have occured over the years?
I thought of Kerry Wood's bathtub accident this year and Matt Morris jumping down a couple flights of stairs to catch a closing elevator (which prompted his owner to change his team name to HOLD THAT ELEVATOR!!)
