He’s certainly not the first non-pitcher to pitch in a big league contest, and most likely will not be the last. But seeing Adam Dunn take the pitcher’s mound on Tuesday night was nothing short of fantastic. I remember watching Doug Dascenzo on WGN pitch for the Cubs when the game was out-of-reach (four different times, actually!), and recall Reds shortstop Davey Concepcion tossing a few pitches in a 1988 game. And who can forget Jose Canseco’s “masterful” performance 60 feet and 6 inches away from where he made a name for himself? 
Dunn’s official pitching record is 1 IP, 2 H, 1 BB, 1 ER. Not a terrible outing for a designated hitter.
Congratulations, Adam Dunn, and thanks for the entertainment.

One of the finest sluggers of the 1990s, Frank Thomas was feared by pitchers across baseball. “The Big Hurt” was immortalized by the National Baseball Hall of Fame today, selected by 83.7% of the voters for enshrinement.
Congratulations, Frank Thomas.
