The Florida Catcher Who Nearly Threw A Ball Through A Pitcher's Neck Is Breaking Aluminum Bats Now

Woe be any major-league baseball team that doesn't give University of Florida catcher Mike Zunino a shot at the bigs. In May, he nearly beheaded pitcher Brian Johnson with a throw to second base in the conference semifinals. In yesterday's win over Vanderbilt, which clinched a spot in the College World Series finals, Zunino's aluminum bat broke and went flying into the stands.

There were no fatalities in either case.
