Another whacky baseball injury
By Bret Lewis, KFWB sports anchor
Michael Taylor is a pitcher for the Oakland A’s. He’s already has missed a week of camp because he cut the pinkie finger on his right hand — in two spots — trying to throw away a wad of gum.
When I tried to be a competitive athlete I couldn’t walk and chew gum at the same time; but I never got injured trying to do it.
(Actually, Taylor is 6’5″ and his hand hit the light on the ceiling of the dugout as he made the toss. But injured by chewing gum sounds better.)
