The New York Daily News got this the other day, but it just came to our attention. As you can hear in the audio above, Joba Chamberlain's injury was reported as a "compound fracture" of the ankle. The bone had come all the way through the skin, and there was blood, though the caller can be heard to say it wasn't that…
We didn't ask for this, to get caught up in Florida's trampoline arena turf war. We just wanted to point out the incongruity of a major league ballplayer suffering a horrific injury at a child's playplace. But there's no going back.
Today we received a letter, from Al Palladino, Sr. VP at Rebounderz® Franchise and Development, Inc. Mr. Palladino takes issue with our headline last week that implied Joba Chamberlain injured himself at one of the six Rebounderz® facilities in Florida.
