Default Hall of Fame Classic Game...

Played Saturday, guess who was catching and won the home run derby?

"Another player who enjoyed his experience was former catcher A.J. Pierzynski. He took in all of the festivities and ended the day as the home run derby winner. It was his first derby since high school and he admitted he was nervous.

However, he calmed down after talking with his daughter, who was in attendance. Pierzynski said her playful joking and a text message from a former teammate helped to put him in the zone. He ended up beating former Royals great Mike Sweeney to take home the title.

"Good, now [former White Sox teammate] Aaron Rowand can leave me alone," Pierzynski said. "He texted me when he found out I was coming, and he's like, 'I won the HR derby, I won the MVP and I'm the mayor of this event.' So he's like, 'You better represent,' so at least now he can leave me alone about one thing."

Hell the Sox should re-sign him right now. He's still better at his age then Narvaez.

The past couple of years I've attended this game in Schaumburg. It's a blast seeing all the old players from both sides of town. I haven't heard any dates posted about a 2018 game, but I sure hope there's one.

PS. If you have a 2005 World Series ball in your collection, it's a good chance to grab some autographs on it, as the players are all very accessible and accommodating, as it's for charity.
