Moustakas suffered the injury running to first base. His heel hit first on the base. He ran to second base thinking the pain would go away in a couple minutes and then went back out on defense thinking the same thing.
“It just never, never went away,” he said. “It just kept hurting and hurting and hurting, and then it got to the point where I couldn’t really even get off the field. I couldn’t really run.”
