Two of the most famous examples of pitchers getting hit by comebackers were Herb Score, who suffered several broken bones in his face and an injured right eye; and Bob Gibson, who was hit in the leg so hard the ball broke his fibula.

Gibson got back up and pitched to three more batters before his leg finally collapsed. He would return to pitch after eight weeks. Score missed four and a half months, but his eye healed completely. He returned the next season.
