The Best Freak Injuries In Major League Baseball

Jose Canseco accidentally shot himself while cleaning a gun on Wednesday which got me thinking what were some of the best freak and accidental injuries in Major League history? Here is my list, what's yours?

  • Sammy Sosa threw his back out in 2004 when he sneezed twice and got back spasms. 
  • Chris Coughlin tore a meniscus putting pie in the face of Wes Helms in 2010. 
  • Marty Cordova fell asleep in a tanning bed in 2002 and missed games due to the burns.
  • Joel Zumaya hurt his wrist and forearm playing Guitar Hero in 2006. 
  • Hunter Pence walked into a sliding glass door after getting out of a hot tub in 2008. 
  • Jeff Kent broke his wrist washing his truck in 2002. 
  • Carlos Quentin broke his wrist punching his bat in 2008.
  • Carl Pavano ruptures his spleen shoveling snow 


  1. I have to go with either Joba breaking his leg on a trampoline, or Kerry Wood hurting himself getting out of a hot tub.

  2. Two that i overlooked, thanks Jeff!

    Although trampoline injuries, my homeowners insurance agent would agent, are not "freak" injuries lol.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
