Sox outfield prospect Bryce Brentz claims that he shot himself in the leg while cleaning his pistol. From Nick Cafardo in The Globe; “It was just one of those things that happened that will never happen again. I have to be more careful.” – Brentz.
Fortunately for Brentz after doing something so utterly stupid, he is expected to be fine. Maybe it isn’t likely it will happen to Brentz again, but he can’t make the “never” guarantee. Hopefully he will decide that getting paid a fortune to play baseball and be counted among the living is enough of a perk to reconsider his position on what role guns play in his life.
