Worst Baseball Accidents

Postby smoovethug » Sun May 20, 2007 9:12 pm

So I was browsing around rotoworld as I do routinely and I came across this:

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!!) :-b

Matt Wise

Jun. 29--Chicago -- As of Wednesday morning, many of Matt Wise's teammates still did not know the Brewers reliever was unavailable to pitch in the first two games against Chicago because he cut the middle finger on his pitching hand on a pair of salad tongs Sunday in Kansas City.

"I've been trying to keep it quiet," said Wise. Which was understandable. As freak injuries go, Wise's ranks right up there, surpassing teammate Jeff Cirillo, who sprained an ankle a few weeks back hopping in disgust after a long drive failed to go out of the park. "At least his was game-related," said Wise. "I was going after a freaking salad." Wise decided to have some salad from the post-game spread Sunday but when he reached for the...

How about just a couple of weeks ago when Freddy Garcia ran into that cart on the warning track... and then the same cart that ran him over was the one that wheeled him back toward the clubhouse.

Well i don't know if this counts as an "accident" necessarily, but when Craig Monroe was hit in the crotch by a pitch, i nearly died laughing after watching the vid...

Notice the loud "POP!" sound right after he's hit, and then his reaction. I can't even imagine the excruciating pain he had to go through, but boy did i have more respect for Monroe after taking that pitch :-b

Ouch.
