Morales Breaks Leg During HR Celebration

As Jerry Reed's character, said to Burt Reynolds in "Smokey and the Bandit..."

"Hoss, you're not gonna believe this..."
But the HQ figured it would happen eventually...

Kendry Morales fractured his lower left leg while celebrating his game-ending grand slam that gave the Los Angeles Angels a 5-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday.

Morales is scheduled to undergo surgery on Sunday. He was leading the club in batting average (.290), home runs (11), total bases (94) and RBI (39).

He leaped toward home plate- as most in his place do- and landed awkwardly- as most in his place don't...

He was placed on the 15-day disabled list, but he'll be gone a little longer than that... here's the incident/accident...
