Unlike my previous article, this one is 100% true...

Top 10 Bizarre Baseball Injuries of All-Time
By Ron P. Crimson | 7:47 AM | MLB | 13 comments »

Who knew adjusting a pillow could be so dangerous? Brandon Inge, who "couldn't even make this up," pulled his oblique Monday night after he stretched out to move his pillow. He is expected to miss two weeks.

Baseball has had its fair share of bizarre injuries, and Inge's would just be the latest. Where does it rank against baseball's all-time odd injuries?

Dishonorable Mention: Joel Zumaya
Originally, the Tigers staff believed the inflamation in Joel Zumaya's arm was caused by, I don't know, activities actually related to baseball. Then they found his problems were more consistent with another game, Guitar Hero.


Dishonorable Mention: Adam Eaton
In a way, I feel sorry for former Padres pitcher Adam Eaton. All he wanted to do was watch a movie. But no, those damn plastic wrappers stood between him and his DVD. So Eaton decided to pull out the paring knife. He accidentally stabbed himself in the stomach, leading to an ER visit. I think a smaller knife would have sufficed.

10. Mark Smith
When the air conditioning stopped working, Orioles outfielder Mark Smith decided to do some investigating. That is, if investigation means sticking just means sticking your hand in the air conditioner. Smith hurt his hand in the process.

9. Sammy Sosa
Sammy Sosa, along with Mark McGwire, placed MLB on his back, brining back the fans' interest. How could we have known his back was so weak. Sammy Sosa's back handled that heavy lifting and the first sneeze; it was the second one that brought out the back spasms. Sosa's double-barreled sneezing forced him to miss a game in favor of back treatment.

8. John Smoltz
John Smoltz is among the best pitchers of his generation. Still, he isn't above an odd (and preventable) injury. You see, Smoltz's shirt was wrinkled. Why not iron the thing? That's what Smoltz did, but he forgot to take off the shirt. He scalded himself with the iron.

7. Steve Sparks
Sparks, while playing with the Brewers, attended a motivational speaking seminar hosted. The group ripped phone books in half and blew up hot water bottles. Sparks was motivated to try it himself. He dislocated his shoulder while trying to tear a phone book in half.

6. Bret Barberie
Bret Barberie was a utility player who has two claims to fame: Jillian Barberie (his former wife) and a chili juice injury. Barberie accidentally jubbed the juice in his eyes, causing him to miss one game while playing with the Marlins.

5. Wade Boggs
Wade Boggs was a greater hitter, winning batting titles in the process. It wouldn't have hurt if, even just once, he was have practiced putting on shoes instead of hitting. Boggs once strained his back while slipping on a pair of cowboy boots. The injury kept Boggs out of the lineup for seven games.

4. Kevin Mitchell
Former slugger Kevin Mitchell has a long history with the bizarre injury. On one occasion, Mitchell was placed on the disabled list after apparently straining rib muscles while vomiting. Later, Mitchell was four days late for 1990 spring training when he was hurt eating an overcooked microwaved donut, leading to a root canal.

3. Greg Harris
Eating sunflower seeds is commonplace in a baseball dugout. Former Ranger Greg Harris learned the hard way that the seeds need to be taken seriously. He injured his wrist while flicking sunflower seeds.

2. Marty Cordova
Most baseball players tan naturally by spending many summer hours under the sun. Others choose to get their tan a different way. Not Marty Cordova. A visit to a California tanning salon provided baseball with one of its more bizarre injuries. Marty Cordova burned his face under some tanning lamps. The Orioles outfielder was ordered by doctors to stay out of direct sunlight for a couple of days. I'm sure he didn't get too much heat from his teammates for that.

1. Glenallen Hill
Nightmares can induce emotional and psychological stress. For Blue Jays outfielder Glenallen Hill, bad dreams brought on a more physical pain. Hill fell out of bed and crashed into a glass table while having a nightmare about being covered in spiders. Hill sustained several cuts in the process, leading to baseball's most bizarre injury.

Hell, I'll just spill it here.

I was admitted to the hospital on May 26th (Memorial Day) with chest pains and it turns out I had a minor heart attack.
The bigger problem is that it was caused by a nasty infection in my foot. Being Diabetic, this is problematic and sure enough, the infection spread to the bones in my foot.
The sad result is that I ended up losing my right leg to amputation and have a long, lengthy rehab ahead of me while I re-learn how to walk on a prosthetic leg.
I have been in the hospitsl now over a month and just hoping to go home around July 4th. We'll see.
T%he one thing keeping me going is my Tigers are finally playing like we had all hoped they would.
Pray for me and keep in touch as I can always use some cheering up.

GO TIGERS.....EVEN NANDO!!

Sorry I think you need a hug Hug

Tigers not rushing back Inge's return
Utility man takes soft-toss BP, but will likely sit through break
By Jason Beck / MLB.com

SEATTLE -- Brandon Inge is doing about every part of his pregame routine nowadays, short of live batting practice. That doesn't mean he'll be playing in games again anytime soon.

With three players having gone through oblique muscle pulls and strains this year, the Tigers have no plans to rush back Inge, and vice versa. He tried to play through it last month and ended up on the 15-day disabled list June 23.

"I'm assuming we're not getting him back until after the break," Leyland said.

Much as Inge wants to play, he isn't going to dispute that timetable. He could probably return sooner if the Tigers absolutely needed him, but there's no way he'd be anywhere near 100 percent.

"I wouldn't want that injury upon anyone," Inge said. "You breathe, you cough, you twist, you turn, you laugh, and it really feels like somebody's slicing your ribs up every time you do it. It's a jab feeling where it locks you up. I feel like I can play through just about any pain, but once it starts affecting your play -- I mean, it shuts down muscles."

The fact that Inge is doing baseball activities now is a step in itself. He wasn't able to do that until Thursday, and he was able to step in and do plenty once he was cleared. He took batting practice off of a tee and from soft-tossed pitches. He was able to do so some running, play catch and take ground balls. The next step will come when he's able to take regular batting practice with the team.

That said, he is also heeding a piece of advice he received from teammate Gary Sheffield, himself a tough player who missed just about a month with a strained oblique earlier this year: When you feel fine, take some extra time and make sure it's OK before risking another injury.

"I understand the point there," Inge said, "because you've already spent that long trying to get over it. To rush back and [have to] do it all over again, which is like a month-long process for most people, what's the point? Take a couple days and make sure it's really good."
