Found September 20, 2013 on Reading Between The Seams:

Baseball players are known for strange injuries, from overexposure to tanning beds to random attacks by fans (that turned out to not really hold up) to trying to scare one’s own kids at Christmas.  On Friday, Toronto Blue Jays OF Colby Rasmus suffered an injury on the field (normal) after being hit by a ball (normal), in between innings simply running to his position (not normal).  It was as her ran to his position at Fenway Park after the bottom of the first.  It must have clocked him pretty good, there was a visible abrasion and he left the game almost immediately.  Watch how it all happened, it took a while for the TV crew to find an angle (give it 75s or so), but it was a one-in-a-million shot (courtesy MLB.com): - David Whitlock Be sure to like our Facebook Page Or follow us on Twitter - David Whitlock Follow @lhd_on_sports - Blog Follow @RBTS_baseball - Sports-Kings Follow @realsportskings The post WATCH: Blue Jays OF Colby Rasmus forced to leave game with bizarre injury appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.
