Former Chicago Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa has landed on a list that nobody wants to be on. A sneeze that landed on him the DL.
Over 1600 RBIs, 609 dingers (ninth all-time), that season he hit 66 home runs (third all-time), the home run trot and celebration, and everything in between.
But Sosa was not only known for the spectacular but also the spectacularly unusual. From the corked bat incident to refusing to play in what would have been his last game as a Cub, drama often followed the Chicago Cubs star right fielder.
A pretty cool Bleacher Report list reminded me of another one of the peculiarities of Sosa’s career. The list details some of the strangest injuries in MLB history.
Of course, Slammin’ Sammy made the list because of the sneeze heard around Chicago in 2004.
