MacCarthy and Greathouse: Leg Injuries in California and Kansas City

Submitted by Steve MacCarthy and Terry Greathouse

MacCarthy Snaps Femur in California

My name is Steve MacCarthy and have been playing in the Redwood Empire Baseball League in California since 2000 and am still playing. In 1994 I was playing for the Novato Knicks, which is a Semi-Pro baseball team also in Northern California, and we were hosting a 4th of July tournament. I was playing catcher in the championship game and it was the second or third inning with a runner at second base when the batter hit a ball to center field. The runner rounded third and the throw was a one hop right on the money.

I was blocking the plate and right before I received the ball I leaned into the runner as he was diving head first and he snapped my left femur right above my knee.  Needless to say that was the only run they scored with the final being 9 to 1. The manager and some of the guys came to the hospital after the doctor installed a metal rod and 12 screws in my leg to give me the trophy. The trophy had a batter and catcher on top of it but a nurse knocked the trophy off the table and the catcher broke off. Well I still have the hardware in my leg and still catch to this day, so Buster Posey has nothing on me!

Greathouse Comes All the Way Back in Kansas City

Hello, my name is Terry Greathouse. I play in the Kansas City MSBL for the KC Padres. Last season on April 29th (opening day) I tore my ACL and MCL. It happened in the bottom of the first inning of our very first game. I had ACLreplacement surgery on the 25th of June. Thanks to the Kansas City Royals winning the World Series in 2015 our playoffs didn't get underway until the end of October, so I was able to make it back for the post season. It's doing very well this season. I am able to play without a brace.
