A Broken Bat That Did Not Seriously Injure Any Catchers

by Sam Miller

When you imagine the awful accident that will someday result from a broken bat, you probably think about the pitcher first, then maybe the baserunner coming down the third base line, then a corner infielder, and then maybe a fan. But, of course, the catcher is closer to that bat than all of them, and it actually only takes a little bit of imagination to see how a broken bat could theoretically endanger a catcher. Or, if you have no imagination, a GIF.

So now there's that to worry about.
