    Pitcher Arm Injury

    Alright, help me out here. What the hell is that catastrophic, traumatic injury that a couple of pitchers have gotten? Ya know, where it looks like his arm pops completely out and the ball goes flying 20 feet to the right of the batter... The pitcher immediately drops down in the worst pain you've ever seen...

    I think it happened to a D-Rays pitcher like 5+ years ago and that's the last I've seen of it. I've been looking all over for it.

    Broken humerus? Like what happened to Dave Dravecky

    That was one of the most gruesome things I have ever seen. That poor guy.

    That's usually it. Dravecky had a weakened bone due to cancer, they later removed most of the arm. Usually there has to be some prior damage, since throwing a baseball should not snap a large bone in half.

    That's when we drop to the ground in obvious pain. He just has to say later on that he played a good game, just wished he could have a couple throws back.

    C'mon man. You're better than that. This is about baseball and pitchers. But I guess since Brady is a catcher I can understand your confusion.
