The Athlete: Buster Posey
The Injury: Fractured left fibula and three torn ligaments in his left ankle
Why It Was So Crazy: Last week, Posey received a nine-year, $167 million contract from the San Francisco Giants. But, back in May 2011, doctors weren't sure if Posey would ever be the same player again after he got into a collision at the plate with Florida Marlins outfielder Scott Cousins that bent him back in a way that would make Neo from The Matrix squirm. He eventually managed to rehab his left leg back to health—but not before he provided us with this crazy photo that we'll never be able to forget.
