June 30 – Broken Bat

One shot that has been eluding me for awhile has been a good broken bat photo. Well, I finally captured one the other night while on assignment covering the Seattle Mariners as they took on the Oakland Athletics in Seattle.

Although I would have preferred an exploding bat shot, this broken bat was kind of unique. The bat split perfectly down the middle as if someone had split it with a hatchet like splitting a piece of firewood.

Now time to capture a true exploding bat……to be continued.

Seattle Mariners designated hitter Jesus Montero (63) hits a broken bat single against the Oakland Athletics during the 2nd inning at Safeco Field.
