Ouch that’s got to hurt: the freakiest injuries in sports history

[post_page_title]Steve Sparks versus the phone book[/post_page_title]
Can you rip a phone book in half? During the Milwaukee Brewers 1994 spring training camp, former pitcher Steve Sparks was trying to guarantee a spot on a major-league team for the first time, but he also wanted to prove that he in fact can rip a phonebook in half (after GM Sal Bando brought motivational speakers who, as part of a presentation, ripped a phone book). Instead, Sparks injured himself while trying to accomplish this feat. The pitcher dislocated his non-throwing shoulder for the seventh time. He would go on to dislocate it 15 times before he retired and underwent three surgeries.
