    [Quote]Does the Reggie Lewis condition count as an injury?[/Quote]

    Reggie Lewis was the first name I thought of on this topic. I think he collapsed during a practice. His loss was certainly significant to the Celtics and affectged them for many years after.

    Significant injuries in Boston sports history

    The most obvious one is that Joe Wood slipped and fell resulting in a sore arm the year after he won 34 games for the Sox. Second, Ted Green was hit over the head with a hockey stick by Wayne Maki. Green missed most of the season, and he was never the same again. Third Dom Dimmagio was injured in game 7 of the 1946 World Series. He was replaced, which contributed to a defensive lapse in which St. Louis scored the winning run.

    Maybe not "significant," but I was there when Tony Muser knocked a liner off Dick Pole's face. If I recall correctly, that ball bounced past Rico Petrocelli playing third and into left field. I don't know if Pole was considered a journeyman or a potential star, but I do know he was never the same pitcher.

    The Rockets shoulfer in 89 I think. It forced Lou Gorman to trade Jeff Bagwell for Larry Anderson. He left after throwing 300 innings in the bullpen warming up since Joe Morgan didn't know how to handle the bullpen.

    What about Dwight Evans? He took a horrific beanball which nearly blinded him, and he was out for the rest of the season and wasn't right until the middle of the next season.

    I thought of Al Nipper getting his knee shredded (spiked) at home plate on May 20, 1986. Blood everywhere. It was a scary thing to watch from TV.

    Someone mentioned Fred Lynn but failed to mention the cheap red shoes the Yawkey's had the Sox where that year. If it weren't for those shoes Lynn wouldn't have slipped into the wall so many times

    I thought of these as I scrolled through the pics and all 3 have been mentioned in the comments, but Tek's broken elbow, Tedy Bruschi's stroke and especially Matt Clement getting hit in the face with the line drive (as he was never effective again after that, which is more than understandable) are huge.

    The comment before me I think refers to Robert Edwards and is a great point- just imagine what he would have become if not for that rookie game injury...

    How about Carlton Fisk's knee in 1974, after Cleveland's Leron Lee slid into him hard at home on a sac fly? At the time, it was thought the injury might be career ending. I was 11 then, and recall attending his first game back in 1975, when he promptly knocked one out of the park. It is amazing to think how many years he went on to play with a (somewhat) rebuilt knee! He was one of the all-time greats, and we got to see his best here in Boston. Fantastic.

    Dwight Evans, 1978 season, got beaned. Don't remember how many games he missed but it definitely hurt the Red Sox. Everyone remembers how that year turned out.
