While baseball seems to be a pretty safe sport - especially when you compare it to some of the others out there like hockey and football - there is still some danger.

It's the runners that run the highest risk of knee injuries. Meniscal tears are pretty common, not to mention ACL and MCL tears should a runner come sliding into base with a leg extended - smack into the knee!

Changing direction too quickly can definitely cause ligaments to be damaged, so be careful while running!
