Poor Chris Snyder

While researching for a totally different article for a totally different site, I had to peruse the Injury History section of player pages at Baseball Prospectus. One of these players was catcher Chris Snyder who suffered an injury that can be considered “unfortunate.”



You know what hurts? Getting a shot to the giggle beans. You know what really hurts? Getting hit in the giggle beans so hard, said beans are considered fractured. I’m not entirely sure if you can fracture soft tissue, but Chris Snyder had to learn the hard way.

Internet searching has shown that Mr. Snyder does indeed have children, most likely conceived before 2008.

Oh, to be a catcher. The tools of ignorance.
