Last month, Angels first baseman Kendry Morales broke his lower left leg while celebrating his walk-off grand slam in a 5-1 win over the Seattle Mariners. The injury required surgery, and in all likelihood, the Halos top power hitter will be out for the remainder of the season. Well, apparently our friends over there in Westwood are also having some difficulties of their own with post-game celebrations. Per ESPNLosAngeles.com:

UCLA's Tyler Rahmatulla will be unavailable to play in the College World Series with a broken wrist.

The injury had nothing to do with playing. It occcured in a freak accident after the Bruins' series-clinching win on Sunday in the Super Regional over Cal State Fullerton, according to a report in the Los Angeles Daily News. The Bruins' second baseman was caught in the postgame dogpile.

I don't like to mock an injured collegiate athlete, but seriously, if you're going to celebrate a victory do it right. Oh, and try to do it without causing a season-ending injury.
