DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Brandon Thomas, an outfielder for the Gateway Grizzlies in Illinois took a huge swing the other night. He hit a grand slam that shattered the windshield of a pickup truck in the parking lot. It was his pickup truck. Thomas told The St. Louis Post-Dispatch he had to drive home with his head out the window to see. He said all he was thinking about was how he was going to pay for a new windshield. You're listening to MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
