Athlete Injuries are no laughing matters. But it would be hard to claim the same for another class of athletes injuries where baseball athletes rule supreme. Gonzalez hurt his back saying hi to a fan at the mall. Irving broke his hand smacking a wall after committing a turnover at practice. And Gobble Felt like kicking a cactus while he was barefoot. Athletes are not known for being the smartest, but some of these athlete injuries are really silly and awkward. For their sakes, these injuries hopefully won’t define their careers or legacies.
