Baseball Injuries That Will Make You Cringe

Last week, Los Angeles Angels batting coach, Don Baylor broke his leg catching an errant ceremonial first pitch from Vlad Guerrero. It was as brutal as it was bizarre. Baseball is not generally considered to be a contact sport but sometimes we get some horrific, gruesome and downright odd injuries from America's past time. This is a look back at some of baseball's most...

Don't call it a comeback.  He's been here for years.

Greenberg hit .255 with 126 stolen bases spread across parts of four seasons...

Mets Card of the Week: 2013 Topps Set

2013 TOPPS SET Bought a box of the new 2013 Topps baseball cards, and I thought I’d share some of the highlights.

Adam Greenberg’s Old Company; Or, a John Rheinecker Tale of Heartbreak

You’re familiar with the story of Adam Greenberg, even if you’d completely forgotten about it until just now. Greenberg made his major-league debut in 2005, and he was hit in the head by the very first pitch that he saw. Greenberg sustained a concussion, and until 2012, that represented the entirety of his big-league career. Eventually, there was a petition to get Greenberg another...

Orioles101 Sits Down with Recently Signed Baltimore Orioles Outfielder Adam Greenberg

The Baltimore Orioles have made a slew of minor league signings this offseason, but perhaps none more exciting than that of Adam Greenberg. Adam was kind enough to take some time for Orioles101 and respond to a few questions for our readers. First, if you have not heard of Adam or his story, it is remarkable. Greenberg was drafted in the ninth round of the 2002 MLB Draft by the Chicago...

So Adam Greenberg got his at-bat, striking out on three R.A. Dickey knuckleballs Tuesday night. - The fact that he got another at-bat, great.
