The weekend series between the Texas Rangers and the Toronto Blue Jays left us a lot to digest.
The two teams are, at the moment, the first and second-ranked teams in MLB in runs scored: that should tell you everything you need to know about the nature of the series.
It was a complete slugfest: it’s to be expected of the Rangers, in all fairness, as they didn’t bring in too many pitching reinforcements but filled their lineup with studs.
One of those studs is shortstop Corey Seager, and he was involved in one of the weirdest moments of the young season.
While taking an at-bat, he swung and hit a pitch, which caused his bat to break.
That is extremely common in MLB, and all baseball leagues to be honest: if hit at a certain spot, bats will break all the time, and dozens of little pieces of wood will be scattered around the plate and the infield.
But Seager’s bat broke in a… weird fashion.

One Of The Funniest At-Bats Of The Young Season
During his follow-through, he held one piece of the bat in one hand, and the largest piece in the other, and this time, there were no little pieces of wood scattered all over the infield.
The funniest thing of all is that he recorded a hit during the at-bat, which tells you about how strong the man is.
Of course, we are talking about a former World Series MVP and the owner of a $325 million contract, so yes, he is strong.
Seager is expected to star the Rangers’ project, leading a franchise who is trying to be competitive once again.
The Rangers will eventually be good enough to seriously contend for the AL West title again, it’s just unlikely to happen this year.
For now, we have Seager and his funny at-bat to talk about.
