MIKE CAMERON
Mets outfielder

Cameron suffered a concussion, temporary loss of vision and two broken cheekbones in a frightening collision with Carlos Beltran during a game on Aug. 11, 2005. The two outfielders, running at full speed, both dove after a fly ball and collided face-first. Cameron sat out the rest of the season and was later traded to San Diego.(Credit: AP, 2005)
