Eric Sogard Trips Over Broken Bat During Athletics-Astros Game (VIDEO)

Oakland A's shortstop Eric Sogard was able to keep his focus in the line of fire on Thursday.

During the seventh inning, Astros outfielder Chris Carter smacked a soft line drive right to the shortstop. But as the ball ricocheted off his barrel, Carter's bat shattered into pieces. Sogard caught the ball, but fell over afterwards when a piece of the bat caught him in the leg.
