    Pence injured in sliding door tumble
    02/19/2008 10:20 AM ETBy Alyson Footer / MLB.com

    KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- Hunter Pence will miss about a week of Spring Training workouts after enduring several cuts and lacerations on his hands and knees that resulted from falling through a glass door at his residence in Kissimmee, Fla. Pence called it a "silly" accident, one that occurred around 9:30 p.m. ET on Monday when he hit a sliding glass door that he did not realize was closed.
    Pence and a friend were about to take a dip in a hot tub outside of the house, and unbeknownst to Pence, his friend had closed the door behind them. Pence got out of the tub to use the restroom and walked into the door, which shattered around him.
    "It's pretty silly to have this kind of freak accident happen," Pence said. "I didn't think I would go through a glass door. Normally, it wouldn't shatter like that. Somehow, it shattered and I was stuck in the middle of a bunch of broken glass."
    Pence jumped into the shower to wash the broken glass off of him, but when he noticed he was excessively bleeding, he called his parents. They told him to call 911, and soon after, according to Pence, "firemen, emergency people and medics came to the house."
    Pence received bandages to stop the bleeding, and the medics gave him directions to the emergency room. Pence returned home around 4:30 a.m.
    Pence has a large cut on his right hand, near his index finger, and several stitches on various knuckles. He also received stitches on his left knee and is wearing a brace, so that he doesn't bend the knee and unhinge the stitches.
    "It forces me to walk with a stiff leg," Pence said. "It really doesn't hurt at all, it's just there. It looks worse than it is."
    Pence admitted he was somewhat embarrassed by the incident.
    "It's embarrassing, but I'm not one to get embarrassed," he said. "I made a mistake, something silly happened and hopefully, it'll just kind of heal up and we'll move on.
    "It's very frustrating, to not be a part of the team and get started and be out there with everyone. It's something I've got to live with and move on and try to get better."

            So Hunter Pence was trashed and had some girl over to bang in the hot tub and his night ends in the ER at 4:30? Shitty.

              The only way Astros news can get on the Lounge.

              This isn't the first time booze and Pence have made the news. Between the steriod guy and the drunk guy spring training is off to a great start

                    This doesn't make any sense.
