129 - Frostbite in August and other Bizarre Baseball Injuries
Show Notes

Baseball players have found creative ways to sustain injuries through the years, from turning off the alarm clock to buttering a roll to taking a bite from a microwaved donut to playing Guitar Hero. The week, the Hooks & Runs crew examines these and other injuries and asks why baseball players are so susceptible to such bizarre mishaps. When, for example, is the last time you heard about a professional football or baseball player tearing a meniscus delivering a shaving cream pie to a teammate's face ... or for that matter, shaking hands.
