Related question: I've never really understood the nature of the injuries we see relatively frequently where hitters pull or strain something on the way to first/crossing the bag, sometimes at nominal speed. Is that generally an acceleration or deceleration problem? Twisting something when a foot hits the bag? Seems an odd injury for healthy, strong guys.
