Independent league player crushes his own truck windshield with grand slam
Brandon Thomas of the Gateway Grizzlies said it was "worth it"
Brandon Thomas of the Frontier League's Gateway Grizzlies had quite the night on Sunday. In the midst of a 17-6 win over the Joliet Jammers, Thomas hit a grand slam. He later discovered that ...
Yep, he got his own windshield. That's something that doesn't happen in The Show. For his part, Thomas wasn't too worried about it:
Must have insurance. Good man.
On the season, Thomas has 11 homers and 42 RBI. He's was formerly under Yankees team control -- they drafted him in the eighth round out of Georgia Tech in 2013 -- but is playing Independent ball this season, as the Frontier League isn't affiliated with MLB or the minors.
