Trampoline Accident

Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain injured himself rather gruesomely in a trampoline accident.

This isn't quite at the level of Glenallin Hill's injury that resulted from the spiders that attacked him in his sleep, but it does seem like a new entry in baseball's version of the Darwin Awards. (The spider incident is described briefly on Glenallen Hill's wikipedia page. Skip Carey used to always bring this up whenever Hill was involved in a game.)

Update: Courtesy of Sammy Kline, here is a slideshow of freakish baseball injuries. Naturally, this includes Glenallen Hill as well as Clint Barmes's bout with deer meat. But where is Chris Brown's bruised tooth?
