Please enjoy Melky Cabrera smashing a pitch with a guitar

Haven't you always wondered what it would be like if baseball players stepped up to the plate with a guitar instead of a bat? And then, on the first fastball they saw, they swung -- destroying both the pitch and the guitar?
Yeah, we thought so. Please witness Melky Cabrera doing just that below:

Quite pleasing, right? Unfortunately, as you probably gathered from the video, this was not a real game. Melky was bringing back his cowboy shtick to promote Country Music Night taking place on June 23. Our only regret was that this other White Sox cowboy wasn't part of it.
