Shane Victorino’s ribs are pretty darn tough

May 13, 2013, 5:41 PM EDT

Yesterday Shane Victorino did this:


It looked like the kind of thing that would crack every rib in your body. He was taken to the hospital to be checked out. Apparently he checked out OK because he’s been cleared to play in tomorrow’s game.

Baseball players: they’re tougher than you and me.

    Saw the play live, it looked bad. You know when the opposing teams bullpen is running towards the scene of the accident it was gnarly.

    I am usually a huge fan of GIF’s but this one does not do this collision justice. It just happened so fast.

    It doesn’t take much to be tougher than Craig……let’s see..

    Baseball players…Check

    I took a bullet to the knee so no I don’t think these players who have every little injury in the book constantly throughout the year are tougher then me or anyone for that matter. Players are like glass they miss most of the season in things most people would keep on working trough.

        I second the nomination of “Mayor Tough Guy!”

      I used to be an adventurer like you until I took an arrow to the knee…

    His duel flap helmet discredits everything though

      If you don’t know that switch hitters use dual flap helmets, what do you know?

    Military is a lot tougher than baseball.

    Good thing he wasn’t injured.

    If the Sox lost him they might turn into the terrible team most people expected them to be almost overnight….or at least over a matter of a couple weeks.

    It’s from eating all that Gabbagool.

    Hockey players are tougher.

      Yeah but it’s close. If you can do this or wear a 95mph fastball and walk down to first like it’s a minor inconvenience then you’re pretty damn tough. Rugby players might be the toughest though.

    Ellsbury would be out the remainder of the season

    • rcquinn1972 - May 13, 2013 at 8:20 PM

      Bite your tongue, Ellsbury would be out the remainder of the season if he sneezed too hard, LOL. I love the BoSox, so I hope we can keep healthy and get some pitcher back!

    Yoo Shane, there’s a wall there bruh. Stupid or tough?

    • tfbuckfutter - May 13, 2013 at 9:51 PM

      He’s learning the hard way what the “warning track” means.

  11. mudhead123 - May 14, 2013 at 12:43 AM

    Do you honestly think all switch hitters appear to be playing in the little league World Series? There are TONS of switch hitters and very few of them wear those stupid helmets. I guess he doesn’t know his right and left to pick the right helmet

    ” Baseball players: they’re tougher than you and me.”

    Uhh, I’m a firefighter. You wanna re-think that one there Craig? Were not all four-eyed plump geeks who get paid to use computers to make words.
