Dodgers reporter David Wassag breaks hand and rib on Bruce slide

The slide at the top of American Home Field, home to the Milwaukee Brewers, is one of the most unique features of any baseball stadium. Whenever Brewer hit a home run or won a game, their mascot, Bernie Brewer, would slide down to celebrate. With the Los Angeles Dodgers in town for a four-game series, reporter David Wasseg thought it would be a good idea to test the slides himself.

Vassegh went down the slide twice. For the first time, the camera recorded his fall, and everything went smoothly. He descended again so the cameras could record his landing, and that’s where everything went wrong.

Wasseg reportedly suffered a broken hand and wrist, as well as six broken ribs, after the end of the slide hit a wall. Despite the injury, Wassag is in good spirits, and everyone around the Dodgers and Brewers is happy about it. Here’s the original video:

Here’s another angle:

There’s nothing funny about broken hands and wrists. Six broken ribs seriously doesn’t sound like a good time. However, as the series between the Dodgers and Brewers continues, Vassegh is becoming a good sport and the laughing point of every joke.

The night after the Dodgers’ win on Thursday, receiver Austin Barnes said the Dodgers rallied for him after a slide accident in Vasse.

Of course Bernie Brewer had to chime in too.

Too bad Vassegh didn’t read it before going downstairs Ridiculously oversized slideshow instruction manual:

Vassegh has been joking with Dodgers players since the incident.

Vassegh got 15 minutes of fame, but paid dearly for it. At least he’s keeping a good attitude about his injury. If you’re going to break six ribs off a slide and break your right hand in multiple places, at least you can have fun.
