How to Hit a Ball Three Times With One Swing

One of the strangest plays in baseball history came on one of the biggest stages Monday night, during the third inning of NLCS Game 7. San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence's bat broke and split in an awkward way, causing it to make contact with the ball three separate times.

The awkward grounder turned in to a three-run double for Pence, propelling the Giants to the World Series with a 9-0 victory.

Using the ChalkTalk Telestrator to play the clip in slow motion, you can identify the three points of contact for yourself.

“That's in super slo-mo. I didn't even feel that,” Pence said. “You couldn't see that with your eye. It broke my bat and I thought I had just stayed inside it. I guess fate just found a way.”
