A Word Of Advice To Baseball Players: Sneeze Carefully

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene with some advice for baseball players. Sneeze carefully. This weekend, Toronto Blue Jays' outfielder Kevin Pillar strained an oblique muscle during a violent sneeze. Now he's sidelined for a week. And that might not even be the weirdest injury of spring training so far. Other players have gotten hurt this year while hopping out of a truck, tripping on a sprinkler head and also climbing out of a hot tub - my goodness. Be careful and gesundheit.
