How important do you think that your toes are? They are just little calloused, smelly appendages right? Wrong.

Dizzy Dean was one of the greatest pitchers of the 1930s and is honored in the Hall of Fame. But in the 1937 All-Star Game, Earl Averill lined a pitch off Dizzy Dean’s toe. The injury seemed minor at the time, but the star hurler rushed back too soon, favored his foot, and hurt his valuable right arm. That injury to his toe made him ineffective as a pitcher. Dean won less than 20 games the remainder of his career.

See, all the parts, even the toes, have an important part to play.
