Professional athletes represent the top form of human athleticism.

They're an elite group with the right mix of fitness and skillset to do things about which most people can only dream.

But don’t forget that those dudes are still human.

And as humans, professional athletes are subject to a wide spectrum of injuries.

For some reason, many of those pratfalls are just odd.

While bizarre injuries aren't unique to any particular sport, baseball still seems to have the weirdest and wackiest.

This is proof yet again that it's good to see what's around you from every angle, which is why we at Fanorama keep these nifty polarized shades with sideviews in stock:

And because cost shouldn't be an issue where safety is concerned, we're only charging $18.99 for the studliness factor this face furniture provides. That's just who we are.

So, don't be surprised by unknown obstacles. They could put a serious damper on your cool factor at the worst of times. Don't let that sorta tragedy happen to you.
