Jarrod Saltalamacchia Hits a Broken Bat Home Run (Video)

It’s not very often that we come across a broken bat home run in the baseball world.  Something has to give when a wooden bat breaks, and one would think it would be power.  Hitting a ball out of the park and shattering your bat must take an incredible amount of strength, which is why it is shocking to see it happen twice in a one-month span.  If Mark McGwire or Sammy Sosa cranked a broken bat homer we wouldn’t be fazed, but for this Rockies’ minor leaguer and Jarrod Saltalamacchia to do it within a month of each other is pretty impressive.  Check out the Jarrod Saltalamacchia broken bat home run video, which was passed along to us by Jose3030:

That’s a short porch in right at Fenway, but that takes nothing away from the feat.  Considering most of Salty’s bat landed beyond the first base bag, that’s a great display of power.  The further we get into the season, the more promise and pop the Red Sox catcher is showing.
