Twins' right fielder Oswaldo Arcia splinters his bat after striking out

The best part of any bat break, intentional or not, is the shrapnel, and Arica has it in spades.

Arcia and Twins fans may not agree, but watching him break that bat is way more fun that a bloop run-scoring single would have been.
