CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

It's not uncommon for a wooden baseball bat to break during a swing. It's happened plenty of times during MLB games. 

Aluminum bats, however, tend to stay strong during a hard hit.

But it's possible for the metal bats to break, as we learned during the Lakota West and Lebanon softball game Wednesday.

A Lakota West High School player's aluminum bat broke clean in half on contact with the ball.

Most softball bats are manufactured in two pieces, and the player's bat took one hit where the pieces merge.

The barrel of the bat flew out toward the Lebanon pitcher, but no one was injured.

Lebanon beat Lakota West 14-13 in the Division 1 regional semifinal.
