Sports Can Be (Very) Hazardous To Your Health

I was talking to my friend Sarah today (a.k.a. Hockeygirl) and she informed me that a thirteen-year-old girl had been killed by an errant puck at a Blue Jacket's game in Ohio, in what is apparently the first-ever such incident to occur as a result of NHL gameplay.

That's about as unlucky a thing as could happen to someone and it got us wondering whether there had been any similiar occurences in pro baseball. According to the article, it had - five times in major league history.
