    Hmm interesting, I dont see the connection between religon and getting hit by a bus, Dave Dravecky was one of the most noble players to ever play the game. And to bash him like that just shows you have little appreciation for decent human beings.

    He is listed as playing for the Bowie Baysox last year but he doesn't have any stats listed...He may still be in the Orioles system still, depends on how he did last year.

    I remember when Dravecky broke his arm, too. h Pretty awful.
    during arthroscopic surgery on his pitching arm a tumor was discovered - surgery was performed, freezing the bone and half the deltoid muscle was removed - he made a comeback, winning his first start - the bone gave in the second start - it was mended but re-broke when someone fell on it during the victory celebration after the giants won the pennant in 1989

    Yes, I believe that happened very soon after the broken arm.

    Saunders originally suffered what was described as a spiral break of the left humerus on May 26, 1999 against the Texas Rangers. The second break occurred just above the other on the 33rd pitch of a scheduled four-inning appearance for the Devil Rays' Class A St. Petersburg affiliate, and left Saunders sprawled on the mound in pain.

    tom browning and john smiley also broke their arms throwing
