There are lots of unusual injuries in baseball -- but not many involve sleepwalking.

Back in 1908, outfielder Sherry Magee of the Philadelphia Phillies was dreaming of making a play when he jumped right out of his third-floor window, according to "The Baseball Hall of Shame: The Best of Blooperstown."

Magee -- a chronic sleepwalker -- miraculously suffered no serous damage and missed only a few days of baseball.

He also blamed a late-night snack of grapes and ham sandwiches for the incident.
