While playing with the St. Louis Cardinals Lance Berkman appeared in only 32 games. But last season Berkman batted .301 with 31 homers and 94 RBIs with a .959 OPS.

Lance Berkman suffered his newest injury to the right knew in a tumble on the team’s charter plane after arriving home from New York on Thursday night. Someone asked Lance Berkman if it was a freak accident and he replied, “No premeditated.” Still not as potentially epic as “I used to be a baseball player, but then I took an arrow to the knee.”
