Broken bats are a part of baseball, but it's not every day that you see a bat break after it didn't touch anything.

During Sunday's game between the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets, Marlon Byrd came up to bat in the sixth inning with the game tied 2-2. He swung and missed at a pitch during his at-bat, but somehow the bat snapped in half. You can see a video of the swing below.

The Phillies ended up losing 4-3, dropping them to 24-30 on the year.
