This cannot be proven, but I'm pretty confident it's right...

The injury roll is not based on games played or missed due to injury, but
the NUMBER OF INJURIES that cause a player to miss any games during that
season.

Therefore, if your dude played 97 games and died, he'd have a 2 or 12
injury roll.

I have NEVER seen a '9' injury roll - that seems proposterous.  Were you
talking about this year's Freddy?

Well, it's not really that high - recall that hit&run and bunt plays don't
go to the player's card at all; also the first few entries on the injury
chart are in effect no-ops.

If you think a '9' is bad, how about Rogers Hornsby's 1930 card with the Cubs?
Rog must have had an ingrown toenail every other week, as he is sporting a '7'
injury both ways...

Manny Mota had a 1-7 injury in 1977.  Strictly a pinch hitter, Mota had 38
at-bats and a slew of walks while hitting .395.  His card was so full of
singles and walks that he had 'Walk plus injury' from one side of the plate
and 'single plus injury' from the other.  He was obviously an extra player
(along with Jerry Grote and Vic Davalillo...helluva bench!)
