Baseball may not be the most physical of sports, but the men who play this grand pastime never fail to find new and interesting ways to injure themselves—especially away from the field.
Judging by the following breakdown of bizarre maladies, baseball players should refrain from getting sandwiches, tattoos or playing with their dogs.

Join me as we recount some injuries that will make your upset stomach after a weekend of drinking seem like a major ACL tear by comparison.
As you will see, we have peppered in a couple of non-players and some injuries that took place prior to spring training because, well, the bizarre nature of their injuries mandated we do so.

With that: We break down some guys who proved life away from the ball field can be just as treacherous as time spent on it.
