Home Run Blast Breaks Player's Own Windshield

Talk about from going "Oh, Yeah!" to "Oh, No!" in a matter of seconds.

There was good news and bad news for Jameson Painter, a Chuckey-Doak High School baseball player, as the Black Knights were playing University High at Jonesborough on Saturday afternoon.

The good news was that Painter, a senior, crushed a home run over the right field fence for the go-ahead run in the eighth inning of a 7-3 win for the Knights over the Junior Bucs.

The bad news is that his home run ball hit the windshield of a car.

It happened to be Painter's own vehicle, and the windshield was broken.

To make matters worse, Painter had picked out a different parking spot when first arriving, decided it might not be a safe place and moved to the spot where he ultimately hit the baseball.

"We were all talking before the game that it wasn't a good place to park because he was liable to hit one there," Coach Dustin Morrow said. "Sure enough, he did. I'm glad he hit the home run but feel bad because now he has to buy a new windshield."
