Colorado Rockies catcher Miguel Olivo may be one of the toughest and craziest players in baseball. Earlier this week Olivo stepped out of the dugout in the 8th inning and passed a kidney stone, he then put his catcher gear back on and continued to play the game.
Now I’ve never had a kidney and I hope to God I never do, but if I do I doubt I’m going to go out and play baseball after I pass it.
“Believe me, it’s not fun,” Olivo said. “Sometimes, when I’ve got that thing, I just want to die. But I can handle pain a little bit. Once it’s gone, I’m normal, I’m good. Let’s play baseball.”
