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.

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

    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 :-)

    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.
