Baseball Player's Grand Slam Smashes His Own Truck Windshield

It was a big hit.

A baseball player’s wallet will be taking a big hit after he hit a grand slam that put his team ahead.

On Sunday afternoon, Brandon Thomas, an outfielder for the Gateway Grizzlies, in Sauget, Illinois, hit a bases-loaded homer in the bottom of the second inning.

The timely hit left the park and put the Grizzlies up by a run, but the 25-year-old Thomas will be paying a big price for it.

It seems the ball landed right on the windshield of Thomas’ pickup truck, smashing it close to smithereens.

Thomas didn’t seem to mind, based on another tweet he posted.

Turns out, Thomas’ windshield-breaking grand slam started a rally of sorts.

The Grizzlies, who play in the independent Frontier League, ended up beating the Joliet Slammers 17-6, and Thomas went 2 for 5 on the day with four RBIs, according to
