From Larry Brown Sports:

It was a night of celebration at Citi Field after Johan Santana notched the Mets' first-ever no-hitter on Friday. Santana's teammates were so eager to congratulate him, one strained his hamstring sprinting in from the bullpen to join the celebration.

Yup, reliever Ramon Ramirez injured his hamstring and is headed to the disabled list.

"He was just running in. He hadn't even gotten to the pile where they were jumping on [Santana]," manager Terry Collins said. "He was just so excited. He was running in, running hard and all of a sudden, his leg grabbed him. I've never seen that."

What a bummer, huh? Even Brian McCann thinks that's a weird way to get hurt. Surprisingly, athletes getting injured during celebrations is fairly common. Here is a full list of athletes who have been hurt during celebrations.

  • I guess the Muts thought tcrete some morhey had to easy, so needed to create some more difficulties for themselves... On the other hand, the other New York team (aka Yankees) are more used to winning, so don't tend to injure themselves as much in the celebrations...
