On July 2, 2008 the Chicago White Sox were hosting the Cleveland Indians. It was the bottom of the 10th inning in a tied game as A.J. Pierzynski stepped up to the plate. The first pitch came, he swung and the ball went sailing. Everyone in the crowd and the dugouts were watching to see if it had enough on it and it did! The ball went sailing over the center field wall. A.J. ran around the basses and joined his team in a celebration.
