credit photo to espn.go.com   Adam Dunn is one individual who never cheats himself swinging a big stick.  The left-handed slugger can launch a baseball with the best of them.  Dunn will never be known for his clutch hitting but he will provide a Reggie Jackson-like swing and when he connects “Lord Have Mercy!”  Today was one of those days where everything felt right and the former Texas Longhorn backup quarterback connected and got a hold of one.  Take a look: courtesy of mlb.com It was a kind gesture by centerfielder Austin Jackson to make an attempt to run after the ball; but in all honesty all he had to do was look up and over. .@adamdunn_32‘s HR moves him past Cal Ripken for 43rd all time w/ 432 HR. Est distance on HR = 475. #WhiteSox lead #Tigers 1-0 in the 5th. — Chicago White Sox (@whitesox) August 4, 2013 I say in about two more seasons, Major League Baseball will have a reincarnation of Jim Thome as Adam Dunn will be approaching 500 home runs. He is sitting a 432 now at the age of 33.
