With the recent injury to Buster Posey during a collision at home plate, it made me wonder what the most horrific injuries were that happened during a game.

Was the injury caused by a collision, running into a wall, getting hit by a pitch or was it just something freaky? How was the player after the injury, did their career continue or were they never the same?

Some of these I remember seeing either when it happened or on a highlight show. Others we only have the stories and the pictures to tell us just how horrific the injury was.

Here’s the list I came up with in no particular order (I find it simply too gruesome to rank these). Let’s start with the injury that everyone, including the Giants owner, are talking about; Buster Posey.
