Steve Angel has been behind the camera at thousands of Major League Baseball games. What happened last night was unique:
It was a 2-2 game between the Rangers and Yankees in the bottom of the fourth -- with the bases loaded and one out -- when Brett Gardner made contact with a Derek Holland fastball. The ball bounced toward the hole in left field, and Gardner's bat -- all except the handle he was gripping -- boomeranged in the direction of Angel's very expensive hi-definition equipment.
"It was kind of spooky, kind of scary, never happened to me before," said Angel, who was still a bit shaken up about it even after the Rangers' 10-3 win.
