    • Dizzy was hit by a line-drive in the 1937 All-Star Game while pitching to Earl Averill. The ball broke one of Dean's big toes. This injury was not severe however; Dizzy came back too quickly and altered his pitching motion to protect his toe. This alteration quickly took a toll on Dean's pitching arm basically ending his career.
