Lightbulb Weirdest baseball injuries?

I stumbled upon this site recently. Thought it contained some pretty interesting info:
Quote:
1. John Smoltz burned his chest while ironing a shirt that he was wearing.

2. Wade Boggs hurt his back when he lost his balance while trying to put on cowboy boots.

3. Odiebe McDowell cut his finger buttering a roll at the Texas Ranger's welcome home luncheon.

4. Ricky Bones hurt his lower back getting out of a chair while watching TV in the clubhouse.

5. Kevin Mitchell strained a muscle while vomiting.

6. George Brett hit his foot on a chair and broke his toe while running from the kitchen to the TV to see Bill Buckner hit.

7. Rick Honeycutt injured his wrist while flicking sunflower seeds in the dugout.

8. Chris Brown injured his eye by sleeping on his eye wrong.

9. Phil Niekro injured his hand shaking hands too hard.

10. Nolan Ryan was bitten by a coyote.
In light of the Jeff Kent issue where he apparently injured himself doing wheelies on his motorcycle, I thought this thread was appropriate. Do you have any interesting/funny injuries in baseball or sports you wish to share?

My friend couldn't make baseball last year because he jumped off a roof and broke his foot...

This is freaky because the announcers were talking about this during the Padre game today...

...they were talking about one guy (i dont remember who in particular) that went on the DL with a strained rear end because he was sitting too long on a stool with a wallet in his back pocket :lol:

There's been a couple rib cage pulls due to sneezing and being put on the DL.

Mike Matheny missed the 2000 playoffs becuase he sliced his thumb open on a knife opening a box.

How about Braves reliever Darren Holmes going on the DL becuase he tripped over the curb of a Montreal restaurant and scraped his thumb?

How about I broke my arm making a diving catch for a football, not on grass, but In the middle of the street. I made the catch, but I was't thinking I was on pavement, definitely a bonehead move.
