Sliding Part 2
I recently re-read the "sliding" thread and was about to draw some conclusions when I read in another thread about a 2B whose
leg was broken by a slider. This injury is a replay of what I sickeningly saw last year.
The purpose of this thread is to ask if you are aware of any serious injuries to fielders as a result of a slide. It is not to place blame on the slider or fielder but to try to determine
if this is an issue or just a freak event. Thanks for your help.

More than likely a freak event, certainly not an epidemic.

Injuries happen, that is a risk we all take. Probably less fielders get taken out by slides then infielders get hit by balls off the special bats. Not trying to get back on my soapbox, just pointing out what I have noticed over the years.

If you want to slide then slide.
If you don't want slide the don't slide.


Who cares.

Who cares are the teammates of the dope who knows he won't slide yet purposely runs himself into a close play where a slide would be helpful, and he winds up unnecessarily thrown out.
