Chicago White Sox slugger Adam Dunn is a 6’6” 285-pound behemoth that either hits baseballs very far, or strikes out—the latter more than the former.

But Dunn has been in the strikeout or home run game for 13 years now, and was overdue to try something new. He did just that Tuesday night, when he took the hill for the first time in his career against the Texas Rangers.

Down 15-0, Dunn pelted the Rangers with low 80s sinkers and almost hit shortstop Elvis Andrus, but did surrender two hits, a walk, and a run.

 

White Sox manager Robin Venture told Doug Padilla of ESPN Chicago, “He's been begging for that for a while. You've got to give the fans what they want.” 

Yes, Robin Venture, you certainly did.
