Is that a broken leg or did he dislocate his hip?

Broken femur. It must have already been weakened by osteoporosis or something worse. This bodes very ill.

damn.
NAHEIM, Calif. -- Los Angeles Angels hitting coach Don Baylor had surgery on his broken right leg Tuesday after getting hurt while catching the ceremonial first pitch on Opening Day.

Baylor had a plate and screws inserted in his leg during 5½ hours of surgery at UC Irvine Medical Center.

Manager Mike Scioscia has no idea how long Baylor will be out of uniform, but he expects to consult regularly with the 64-year-old former Rockies and Cubs manager during his recovery from Monday's bizarre injury.
That's what's so fucked up about getting old. There you are, just standing around, minding your own business, and your fucking bones break.

Baylor, 64, is a survivor of multiple myeloma, a cancer that attacks bone marrow. He was diagnosed with the cancer in 2003, and he is active in fundraising efforts to combat the disease.
It is a terrible disease.

If he was diagnosed in 03, then he's had a very good run with it. Average is 5 years. Mom was diagnosed just before Christmas so I've become pretty familiar with this form of cancer.
