Baseball Player's Bat Breaks In His Hands Mid-Swing And People Have Jokes

Twitter/@Cut4

In baseball it's usually the ball that gets sent flying, but when Noah Syndergaard stepped up to the plate in the New York Mets' final game of the season, that wasn't to be the case.


The Mets pitcher's nickname “Thor" seemed particularly apt when he swung his hammer of a bat at a Miami Marlins pitch, only to see the lumber fly right off.



"Check for termites!" one commentator said, before the other replied:

"I don't think it's the bat, I just think it's Noah. He's too powerful for this piece of lumber!"



His long blond locks are something Syndergaard has in common with Thor, as well as some mighty strength in those arms.

Unlike the God of Thunder he uses them to wield a baseball bat, not a hammer.


People were quick to come with the Thor jokes.







Others had different humorous observations.

From Guardians of the Galaxy comparisons...

...to Star Wars...

...and other quips.



And others just needed to spoil everyone's fun with real world possibilities.


This is far from a rarity, though, as many have broken their bats mid-swing before.

In 2014, Yasiel Puig of the Los Angeles Dodgers broke his bat mid-swing.



As did Marlon Byrd of the Philadelphia Phillies that same year.



Here is a compilation of historical bat breaks to further satisfy your bat breaking fix.



Happy swinging, friends!

It seems like it wasn't so long ago that Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson announced their engagement. The whirlwind romance had escalated to marriage talk in June, and the two stars would rave about how happy they were. It was enough that when Grande released her album Sweetener in August, she added a last minute track dedicated to her paramour called "Pete Davidson".

In the short time since, the young couple have called off the engagement and broken up, but Grande is still one of the largest stars in the world. Her works are listened to repeatedly and analyzed by fans. Which is why it's surprising it took this long to discover the hidden message in "Pete Davidson" Grande left for her romantic partner of the time.
