The deadliest sports still practised today

Former Atlanta Braves owner Ted Turner once said, “Sports is like a war without the killing.” And while that might be true of baseball (with the exception of Cleveland Indians shortstop Ray Chapman, who died after being hit in the head by a pitch in 1920), it’s certainly not true of all sports, be it as a result of direct or indirect fatalities.

The second slide is the sport Jai Alai, I must admit I have never heard of this sport before but reading up on it, it says it is most popular in Latin American countries and the Philippines, has anyone on here ever played this sport or even heard of it? it looks a bit like squash to me.

Running was in there and MMA isn't o.O 

Strange list I think seems to take in the number of deaths but not per person ratio.

Also I don't call bull riding a sport. More a cruel hobby :(
