Found July 03, 2013 on The Other Paper:
PLAYERS: Adam Dunn
TEAMS: Chicago White Sox
Andrzej Fonfara brought a little something extra to the mound when he visited U.S. Cellular Field to throw out the ceremonial first pitch for his home town Chicago White Sox Tuesday night.  The IBO Light Heavyweight World Champion also carried a swagger and a challenge to White Sox slugger Adam Dunn. Before making the opening toss, Fonfara, known as "Chicago's Polish Prince," called out the big first baseman — even though Fonfara will actually square off against former champ, Gabriel Campillo, at U.S. Cellular on August 16. "If he wants to try sparring, why not?" Fonfara said. "We'll see what happens." Dunn — who is 6-foot-6 and weighs in at 285 pounds — would have to drop a few pounds before facing the 6-foot-2, 175-pound Fonfara. Dunn hasn't responded to Fonfara's challenge but, if he does, the Big Donkey might want to bring a bat.  IBO Light Heavyweight World Campion Andrzej Fonfara threw out his first pitch ever before tonight's game. https://t.co/HVbhb2cpJd — Chicago White Sox (@whitesox) July 3, 2013
