This doesn't happen very often. On Sunday afternoon, Phillies outfielder Marlon Byrd managed to break his bat without even making contact with the pitch (or snapping it over his knee):

Either Byrd is incredibly strong and has a lightning quick bat, or that bat already had a pretty big crack in it. I'll pretend it was the former.

Breaking the bat on a swing-and-miss is impressive, but it does not compare to the time Albert Belle snapped his bat on a check swing:

Brute strength at its finest.
