TV camera smashed by stray baseball bat (Video)

A TV cameraman filming the action at a US baseball game had the front of his camera smashed by a wayward bat which flew out of a player's hands.

Steve Angel had been shooting at the recent match between the Rangers and Yankees when Brett Gardner stepped up to the plate and smashed the ball.

Unfortunately for the cameraman it wasn't the only thing getting smashed -- the bat snapped off from the handle and came flying towards him hitting the front of his camera.

It knocked a hole straight through the front of the camera and left him (and viewers at home) looking through a snowflake/spiderweb effect of broken glass.

Angel, proving he is a consummate professional, continued to shoot the game on his broken HD camera and tried to line the action up with the hole.

Speaking after the game he said the bat had only broken the glass there to protect the lens, not the lens itself which would have cost thousands of dollars to replace.
