"It’s the stuff dreams are made of. I’ve had about 100 of these at-bats in my backyard with my younger brother."
–Geoff Blum, Chicago White Sox
Congrats to White Sox reserve infielder Geoff Blum, who hit the game-winning homer of World Series Game 3! In his first World Series at-bat ever, the journeyman switch-hitter, who played with the Astros in 2002 and 2003, went yard on an Ezequiel Astacio pitch in the 14th inning. Blum hit the homer right after the Astros turned a sparkling double play on two of his more famous teammates: Jermaine Dye and Paul Konerko.
Blum has the least playing time of anyone on the White Sox postseason roster. He entered the game in the 13th inning as a defensive replacement.
You never know who’s going to come up big.
