In the top of the fourth inning, during Sunday’s game against the Red Sox, Eduardo Nunez hit a foul ball that made its way toward the Chicago White Sox broadcast booth.
Pierzynski who was a catcher, and knows how to nab a ball, caught the ball right in front of legendary brodcaster Hawk Harrelson.

Hawk Harrelson said his broadcasting finale will be the three games of the Cubs series, and that he’s asked A.J. Pierzynski to be in the booth the final game.
His one hope is that A.J. doesn’t get him so worked up that he starts cursing, which he is capable of doing, but at least A.J. will be there to catch any balls that come Hawk’s way.
