Ballplayers’ Bizarre Off-field Injuries

March 25, 2012 by staff 

Ballplayers’ Bizarre Off-field Injuries, If you’re a professional athlete, injuries are almost guaranteed. Whether it’s a repetitive stress injury from tennis, a torn ACL from football or something more brutal like a hockey stick to the face, sports injuries are simply a part of life for the professional athlete.

In a twist, the New Orleans Saints were sanctioned by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on March 21 for a bounty program that paid players to injure specific members of opposing teams. The penalties included a one-year suspension for head coach Sean Payton.

Those who spend their hours on the field may court blunt force trauma, but that doesn’t mean they can’t injure themselves off the field as well. Yes, even professional athletes suffer the same stubbed toes, paper cuts and tumbles down the stairs as the rest of us, and sometimes he or she suffers off-field injuries so bizarre that they become noteworthy.

Just this week New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain underwent surgery after dislocating his ankle while playing with his son on or around a trampoline.
