You may want to add “hitting a home run” to the list of dangerous things that one can do. In May, we saw Los Angeles Angels’ Kendry Morales break his leg while celebrating a walk off home run. Today, Cincinnati Reds’ Jim Edmonds appeared to hurt himself during his home run trot against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Keep in mind the weird-injury curse struck many times this season: Florida Marlin’s Chris Coghlan injured his knee during a pie celebration and Atlanta Braves’ catcher Brian McCann hurt himself while running around the swimming pool. And we can’t forget A.J. Burnett’s mysterious black eye.
