Arizona Catcher Chris Snyder “Fractures” Left Testicle

July 3, 2008

This story brought me to my knees on first read. In a game Monday night Arizona Diamondback catcher Chris Snyder “fractured” his left testicle after a foul tip shot into his grundle. The play occured in the fourth inning when Milwaukee's Cory Hart swung at a low pitch.

As of Tuesday Snyder was placed on the 15-day disabled list and now he is expected to have surgery- despite an earlier report.

When RBI heard of the terrible mishap, we asked around to find out what exactly it means to “fracture a testicle”. Unfortunatley, the word fracture has nothing to do with a bone in this case.

According to eMedicine.com, a testicular rupture or fractured of the testis refers to a rip or tear in the tunica albuginea resulting in extrusion of the testicular contents. I think I would rather have one of my arms cut off. OUCH!

RBI's advice: FOR GOD SAKES PUT A HELMET ON THE OTHER HEAD!

One thing is for sure….this Diamondback will not be circling the bases for a long time!
oooowwwwwwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
