The Most Devastating Injuries in Recent Sports History

Geoff Jenkins

Team: Milwaukee Brewers
Sport: Baseball
Year: 2002

Jenkins was never exactly a speed demon, so what he was doing taking such a big lead off of third base in a July 2002 game is anyone's guess. When he retreated to the bag he got his foot in safely, but unfortunately the rest of his body wanted to keep going. The result was a dislocated ankle and multiple torn ligaments ending his season. However, he returned the next year and continued to play effectively until retiring following the 2008 season.
