Now that would be a sight to see. You see it a lot more in the major leagues but not nearly as much on a recreational softball league level. I miss softball (and basketball, and sports in general).Originally Posted by Paulie
Not that any one cares but when I snapped my ankle in two it was playing third base. I had fractured it the inning before sliding into second, and just thought it was a really bad sprain. Well I wasn't gonna let a bad sprain stop me from playing, so I take the field - first ball of the inning of course is a routine grounder hit right to me. I plant my left foot to throw to first... and my leg starts to vibrate and I collapse to the ground with what is easily the most pain I have ever felt in my life (I'd never even been to the hospital before then). Doctor told me later that if I had left the game after the hairline fracture from sliding into second and just rested it a couple of weeks that all would have been good. Instead, I now have a steel plate in my ankle and STILL struggle with any mobility much faster than a walk almost two years later. I'm actually contemplating going back in to the doctor's and having them remove the plate and actually doing P.T. this time instead of just thinking it'll heal itself.
