Other than the cast you'll wear for a couple of months (and perhaps some pins, which are sometimes temporarily inserted to stabilize the fracture), you should be fine.

You got a boxers fracture on May 1st and your baseball season starts on may 8th and ends June 17th is there anyway you could play this season?

I seriously doubt it, but it will depend on the severity of the fracture. A boxer's fracture is defined as a break through the bones of the hand that form the knuckles (usually the head of the metacarpal). Some doctors use the term "brawler's fracture" rather than "boxer's fracture" because a boxer is not likely to get this injury. The less well-trained brawlers have to learn how to punch without hurting themselves. Using a broken hand that is not properly immobilized can cause damage to surrounding muscles, blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. When a boxer's fracture occurs, it is possible for a portion of the metacarpal bone to move out of normal alignment. This is called angulation. The amount of angulation will determine what type of treatment is required to ensure proper healing. People with boxer's fractures who have acceptable amounts of angulation may be splinted in the emergency department or doctor's office. Any degree of angulation in the second or third metacarpal bones is considered abnormal and requires referral to a hand specialist for possible surgical repair. Boxer's fractures of the fourth and fifth metacarpal bones only require surgery if large degrees of angulation are present and the bones cannot be moved into the correct place by pulling and pushing on them.
