Is This The Worst Play In The History Of Baseball? AJ Pierzynski Scores From First On A Groundout

In the bottom of the seventh of yesterday's game against Oakland, White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez hit a grounder to the left side of the infield. Third baseman Adam Rosales and shortstop Cliff Pennington both went for the ball. Meanwhile, White Sox catcher and notable asshole AJ Pierzynski took off from first. Seeing that Rosales wasn't anywhere near the bag, Pierzynski rounded second and headed for third. Derek Norris, the Oakland catcher, spotted Pierzynski going for third and went to cover the bag. This left no one at the plate and Pierzynski was free to stroll on in for a run. It was ugly, but was it worse than this?
