Baseball and Reading: A dangerous combo

It has been quite awhile since I blogged about baseball (despite my Giants having one of their best seasons in a long time), but this story is too good to pass up. Apparently, Chicago White Sox pitcher David Aardsma was not available to pitch recently because of a reading-related injury. From ESPN’s Jayson Stark’s Injuries of the week (scroll down):

• First prize: We’ve always thought it was sad that too many Americans think reading is painful. But maybe they have a case, after closer David Aardsma’s mishap this week. Aardsma was unavailable to pitch Tuesday with a sore back. And how did his back get so sore? From curling up, reading a book on the coast-to-coast flight from Seattle to Tampa on Monday. Ouch. Here’s our recommended reading for his next flight: “Excuses Begone!”
