Fourth Metacarpal

Philadelphia Phillies second baseman Chase Utley and I have something in common: we both broke the fourth metacarpal in our right hand when it was hit by a pitched ball.  Although his happened tonight, against the Washington Nationals of the National League, while mine happened 24 years ago, against the New York Yankees of the Cupertino American Little League.  And though I haven't seen the footage of tonight's game, I'm guessing Chase probably didn't fall to the ground in a heap crying for his mommy like I did.  Nonetheless, just like I missed two-thirds of my season, Chase'll have to miss a few weeks' worth of games.  Get well soon, Chase.
