Citi Field bruise

Four days ago, I took a spill during batting practice at Citi Field. I knew it was bad at the time — slamming into a seat is never good — but didn’t think the bruise would end up looking quite like this:

Yes, I have big hairy legs and a tremendous farmer’s tan. Deal with it.

That almost looks like a Doppler radar storm tracker photo. Just saying.

Jeez, that’s a big bruise. I had a bruise that big once from ballhawking. Hope you get better.

Holy Cow!.. Owwwwwwwwwww I’ve never gotten a bad bruise at a game. A bruised ego… yes. Lol But I’ve gotten some bad cuts.

Ooooo, pretty!

Zack, what’s your worst ballhawking injury? Was it when you rolled your ankle last year at Citi Field? I once ran down a hill, fell, scrapped up my knee, and nearly got ran over by a car for a warm-up overthrow that left the park… it was worth it :-)

This is the last time I read your blog while eating dinner.

Ouch!

I want to punch you right on that bruise just to hear what cuss words you would say.

CHARLIE BOWEN-
Ha, nice.

QUINN-
Surprisingly, it doesn’t hurt — not even when I press it hard. Very strange. It just looks bad.

FSPORTSWRITER-
Bruised egos are much worse.

LIZ MERRY-
:-)

PHILIP JOENS-
You’re insane. My worst injury was the sprained ankle last year. The cracked rib in ’08 wasn’t fun, but at least I could still run around. I just had to try not to laugh or sneeze.

GARRETT MEYER-
Ha-ha!

MIKE-
Yep.

LEIGH-
You’re evil.

When I went to games on 5 straight days, after the 5th one, I had a bruise that looked like that on the part of my leg that rubs against the seat when I climb over seats. It didn’t feel too nice.

Climb careful-er!
