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.

Watch the final out of Johan Santana's no-hitter
All of the New York Mets were absolutely ecstatic over Johan Santana’s masterful pitching dominance that gave the franchise it’s first no-hitter in over 50 years.

Congratulations Mets fans. The wait is finally over, and it feels good. It was great to be able to see some Mets history being made, but I couldn’t help noticing how much attention there was surrounding Johan Santana’s pitch count.
