The Braves have signed veteran catcher A.J. Pierzynski, according to multiple reports. The first report was from a guy in a ham store. 

Ken Rosenthal explains how two teenagers scooped him​

Aaron Lunsford is the drummer for a Christian rock band called As Cities Burn. His father was buying a ham for Christmas when he bumped into Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez. Gonzalez told Lunsford's dad they had just signed A.J. Pierzynski. 

So Lunsford tweeted at a few reporters, asking if they could confirm the news. Sure enough, it seems like the real deal.

What a world.
