When you read the title of this post, you probably wouldn’t believe it since the New York Mets right fielder Curtis Granderson played in every single game and inning throughout the World Series.

Granderson tore a ligament in his left thumb during Game 3 of the NLCS against the Chicago Cubs, when he slid into a base. He wrapped the finger and continued to play the rest of the series and all five games of the World Series without incident.

Considering the injury, Granderson hit .250, with three home runs and walked four times, leading the Mets with a 1.060 OPS in the Fall Classic.

The right fielder underwent surgery this week to repair the torn ligament and should be ready for the 2016 season.
