Philadelphia Phillies Ben Revere Breaks Ankle with Foul Ball
Ben Revere, center fielder for the Philadelphia Phillies, suffered an injury during a game Saturday that looked incredibly painful. There is, of course, a clip circulating in the news of the incident and it is difficult to watch.
Revere fouled a ball off his ankle while batting during a game against the White Sox, causing the ankle to fracture.
The injury occurred during the eleventh inning of the game. Revere continued playing through the pain of his broken ankle (something that is definitely not recommended), but the Phillies ended up losing.
Revere is scheduled to have surgery on the ankle today. Rehabilitation is expected to take about six to eight weeks, so Revere should be back on the field either at the end of August or the beginning of September.
These types of injuries are not that uncommon in baseball. Foul balls can cause injuries to the batter, other players in the field, or even spectators in the stands. A foul ball can be hit hard enough to cause serious injuries, so always be cautious and aware when on the field.
