A.J. Pierzynski signing with Braves first reported by guy in ham store
The Braves have signed veteran catcher A.J. Pierzynski, according to multiple reports. The first report was from a guy in a ham store.
Fredi after mentioning grilli signing "we signed a catcher today, pierzynski"— A-A-ron Lunsford (@darrenstains) December 24, 2014
dad - "AJ?"
Fredi - "yep. You're the first to know"
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.
