The Minnesota Twins held their TwinsFest the last weekend in January, where
fans and players (past and present) meet and participate in activities baseball
and /or Twins related. Apparently not ALL the news coming out of that
homage to all things Twins is wonderful.
Aaron Rupar of the Minnesota Star-Tribune
reports that the injury sustained by Anthony Swarzak was the result of rowdy play
amongst teammates at a post-festival party Friday night, January
"Some of the fellas got together on that Friday night (Jan. 25), and
they started wrestling around a little bit. It was just horseplay,"
general manager Terry Ryan said. "Anthony apparently [took an] impact, and
ultimately, he cracked a couple of ribs."
He did not name the other participants. Swarzak is expected to miss a
month. Evidently, this group spent the day wowing the kids who came out
to meet them, and the night acting like kids themselves.
