    Significant injuries in Boston sports history

    How could you not include Teddy Green? I'll never forget seeing him get hit with a hockey stick, being weilded like a hatchet, and then seeing him fall to the ice. It was a long time ago, but for us old time Bruins fans, it's one we'll never forget.

    How about Irvin Fryar of the Patriots getting stabbed in the hand by his wife during a domestic disturbance, prior to the Super Bowl? I went to school with Jackie and she was pretty and tough back then.

    Doug Griffin hit in the head by Nolan Ryan circa 1973. I was there that night. He missed the rest of the season and was never the same afterward.

    THANK YOU FOR REMEMBERING BRYCE FLORIE. I WAS WATCHING ON TV THAT NIGHT AS HE TOOK THE LINE DRIVE TO HIS FACE. HE WAS OBVIOUSLY IN SHOCK AS HE WAS DRIVEN OFF THE FIELD ON THE GROUNDS CREW CART. HE STARED AT THE CROWD LIKE HE DIDN'T KNOW WHERE HE WAS, BLOOD POURING FROM HIS NOSE, DOWN OVER HIS CHIN.

    IT WAS A HORRIBLE EVENT AND ONE I'LL NEVER FORGET!

    What about Jumbo Joe Thornton's rib injury in the NHL play-offs keeping him from banging on the boards, and causing Montreal to make that comeback. I think that was the same year Mclearan railed one of the Habs players.

    How can you forget Carlton Fisk's season-ending injury at homeplate on June 28, 1974? Bob Montgomery's big chance!!

    Yes - "High Stick" the story of Ted Green. Absolutely one of the worst!

    I am fairly amazed that there was no mentioned of Reggie Lewis among the most notable injuries. Although I guess a heart problem isn't exactlyan injury, but it was painful for Boston fans nonetheless. His death was the real start of the Celtics slide until this past season.

    What about Roger Clemens in the 1986 world series? What would have happened if he didn't get a blister and had to leave the game? We may have celebrated a world series victory before 2004.

    You may not remember a very good outfielder in the 50s, Gary Geiger who hit the right field wall at fenway, collapsed a lung and was never the player we all thought he should be. It may not qualify as an injury, but rember two other Red Sox outfielders who had mental problems and were never quite the same, Jimmy Piersall, and Jackie Jenson. Jackie retired rather than fly in a plane which scared him unmercifully. Both could have been great players without those problems.

    Smokey Joe Wood, 34-5 in 1912, 348 innings, two wins in the World Series; slipped on the mound the next spring, age 23, tore his right thumb and his shoulder, smokin' no more. Walter Johnson said Wood was the hardest thrower he ever saw, and the old-timer scouts say Johnson threw harder than Feller and Ryan.

    Significant injuries in Boston sports history

    Two major historically significant injuries were Russel's broken leg in the playoffs; winning that series would have let them win TEN championships in a row instead of only eight and Ted's hit by a pitch in a pre world series exhibition game that probably broke his wrist (of course he played anyway). He only had a few hits in a seven game loss in his only world series - with a healthy Ted Williams the Sox would have ended the long drought in the 40's. Ted's various other injuries, broken collar bone, pinched nerve in neck, and broken elbow kept him from hitting over 400 again, a feat he surely otherwise would have accomplished a few more times (and almost did anyway).
