    David Nail Breaks Finger Playing Softball with Carrie Underwood

    He was just lending his hand to a worthy cause.

    But country star David Nail left Saturday'sCity of Hope celebrity softball game, which raises money for the cancer institute, with a broken finger.

    "Gonna be one handed for a while!" he Tweeted post-game, following a trip to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center he thanked the "Vandy ER" in his Tweet where the singer-guitarist's right hand was treated.

    He added, "Thanks for the concern, this is a lesson to not play like you're 18 when you're 33! Fingers crossed for no nerve damage."

    For Nail, the former recipient of a college baseball scholarship, the Nashville game started out on a high note, and he made four of the morning's most memorable catches, according to MSN. But on the fourth play, the "Let It Rain" singer sustained a minor fracture and a detached tendon on his right hand (just not before landing an out for his team, including Scotty McCreery, Robin Meade and Jessie James, which played opposite of Carrie Underwood).

    Ironically, Nail talked about his goal of leaving the game in tip-top shape prior to playing ball. "I don't think I've picked up a bat since last year, which is probably not the best way to prepare for a game," he told PEOPLE earlier. "I think the older you get,the more you try to get through this without being injured. That's my No. 1 strategy."

    But Nail's spirit seemed to stay intact even if his finger didn't.

    "You put me in the game, and I only know one speed: hard," he said in a statement about the game. "I only play all-out, and that's what I was doing."

    And with any luck, he'll be strumming his guitar again in no time. Nail says he will see "a really good neurosurgeon" this week, and he'll go to a hand-specialist Tuesday.

    Yikes!! Have to be careful when you're older and playing sports - alot of singers have been injured playing the City of Hope game - just have to dial back and realize you're not a youngster anymore - does he play the guitar - I imagine he does - terrible for him!

    I used to play baseball. Sometimes it can be as simple as catching the ball wrong that can really mess up your hand.
