Grandma Pierzynski

Umpire Jerry Eddings screwy call brings up more on the Bridgehampton, Long Island Yastrzemski/Pierzynski connection:

"I didn't know what [A.J.] was doing. He was going pretty slow," [Sabrina Pierzynski] said of her grandson's decision to take off for first. She added that it was a good call. "I thought the ball was in the dirt," she said.

She was speaking from her house, about a block away from Carl Yastrzemski's boyhood home. Over the years, she has seen and heard a lot about plays at the plate. She recalled that her late husband and A.J.'s namesake, Anthony, was the catcher for a Bridgehampton town team called the White Sox. Yastrzemski was the batboy.

The Bridgehampton team was apparently actually named the White Eagles not the White Sox, but we can forgive Granny Pierzynski the mistake.

Congratulations and good luck to the Chisox in the World Series!!
