Earlier today, the Los Angeles Dodgers played an exhibition game against a team made up of Australian baseball players. And Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez had to leave the game early due to a sore back. It won't affect him long-term. But you'll never believe what caused the injury in the first place.
"I need to rest, get off my feet," he said after the game. "I've done a lot of walking around the city."
That's right, folks. Gonzalez injured his back…sightseeing. Fortunately it doesn't sound too serious and he'll be able to play in the Dodgers' season opener against the Arizona Diamondbacks this weekend. But WTF? This injury isn't going to do much for the reputation of baseball players not being great athletes.
