This is why I like hand tools, they might be slower but they tend to take off fingers one at a time....
Hill back in majors after saw accident
CHICAGO (AP) - Koyie Hill may have been the happiest callup of all when the Chicago Cubs expanded their roster Monday for the final month of the season.
Just to be in a major league uniform - any baseball uniform really - seemed unlikely a little more than 10 months ago when Hill nearly lost three fingers and the thumb on his right hand in a table saw accident.
A specialist was able to reattach all four after they were severed and Hill made a miraculous comeback after hours of therapy and a long relearning process that included sessions with Triple-A Iowa hitting coach Von Josuha.
"I had to learn how to give high fives all over again. Everything is different," Hill said.
Hill was so determined to play again he said he considered having his pinkie that had been greatly damaged amputated so he could grip the ball better when he threw, an essential part of a catcher's game.
After a slow start in Triple-A that produced self doubts, Hill warmed up when the weather did. The first cold months were very difficult.
"I felt like I had frozen carrots for fingers," he said. [snip]
