How often is the most interesting play of the game a foul ball?

That was the case in Friday's Florida-Vanderbilt game at the College World Series, when sophomore Gators catcher Mike Zunino most definitely gave fans in the third base-side stands a good scare by breaking his aluminum bat on a fastball and sending the barrel spinning out of control.

Luckily, nobody was seriously injured and even though Florida defeated Vanderbilt 6-4 to reach the finals, Commodores senior reliever Mark Lamm can now say that even an aluminum bat is no match for his heater.
