Bio BobbyvBoston Red Sox Manager Bobby Valentine was reportedly injured yesterday (Tuesday, October 3, 2012) in New York City when he crashed his bike in Central Park while reading a text, according to a story in The New York Times.

On the wet, slippery path, Valentine was reading a text on his phone from Dustin Pedroia, the Red Sox second baseman, and riding his bicycle. When he looked up, he had to swerve to avoid the umbrellas of two French tourists walking in front of him. The bike skidded, and he lost his balance and went careening head over pedals down the side of the hill by the road.

Remember, don’t text and ride, especially if your real skills are on the diamond.
