A Braves player was forced to leave the game before the first pitch was thrown out.
A freak accident caused an Atlanta Braves player to come out of a game before the game even started.
Second baseman Johan Camargo was running out onto the field when he stumbled and took an awkward step before going down in a heap.
It looks like Camargo stutter-stepped and then hyper-extended his knee.
He remained down for a few minutes before being helped off the field.

Camargo, 23, has been a lone bright spot for the Braves this season. Since getting called up from the minors, Camargo has batted a respectable .297 with three home runs and 19 RBIs in just 64 games.
We hope it’s nothing serious, but the injury doesn’t look good from the video.
