A.J. Pierzynski's Home Run Hit A Toddler Because Two Adults Got Themselves Out Of Harm's Way

You might have already seen this clip of A.J. Pierzynski going deep off Jason Isringhausen in the seventh inning yesterday afternoon, since Pierzynski set a White Sox record by homering in his fifth straight game. But a reader named Chris alerted us to where the ball wound up: just inches in front of the head of a child who was instantly terrified by the screaming baseball that ricocheted off his belly.

Watch the video below and be sure to stick around for the slow-motion replay at the end. There were adults on either side of the child. Both of them bailed and left the kid completely exposed. But, hey, at least they got the ball! Fun for the whole family!
