Even when Bo Jackson struck out (which was often), the 6-foot-1 Rock of Gibraltar entertained the masses by channeling his disappointment into a show of strength — by snapping his bat over his knee like it was a toothpick.

He might not have been the first to do it, but Bo turned bat breaking into art. Every once in a while, a contemporary major leaguer will break his bat, or will try, in like fashion.

As we will see in the photographic evidence obtained from the Yankees' 7-2 playoff victory over the Twins on Wednesday night, Minnesota's Orlando Cabrera(notes) don't know diddley about breaking a bat over his knee.
