WATCH: Blue Jays OF Colby Rasmus forced to leave game with bizarre injury
Baseball players are known for strange injuries, from overexposure to tanning beds to random attacks by fans (that turned out to not really hold up) to trying to scare one’s own kids at Christmas. On Friday, Toronto Blue Jays OF Colby Rasmus suffered an injury on the field (normal) after being hit by a ball (normal), in between innings simply running to his position (not normal). Watch the event unfold (via MLB.com) as he ran to center field at Fenway Park after the bottom of the first (stick with video for about 100s). It must have clocked him pretty good, because there was a visible abrasion and he left the game almost immediately.
