WATCH: Hawk Harrelson Has a New Word For Home Run
You can put it on the board....Hawk Harrelson had made his first goofy quote of the year.
Best known for his being a total homer for his beloved Chicago White Sox, it's been a tough few years for Harrelson. Since their World Series run in 2005, the White Sox have made the playoffs only once, and he's had some tough times during that stretch futility including a brouhaha with umpires during the 2012 season. We're just two games in the 2016 baseball year, and already Harrelson has broken out a head scratching quote that many fans love (or hate) him for.
The Sox actually got off to a good start on the 2016 season, picking up the first games in an opening set with the Oakland Athletics. In the third game, they fell behind 2-0 early half of those runs coming courtesy of a home run by Mark Canha. That's when Harrelson, of course reacting very nonchalant to an opposing Oakland home run, broke out the latest synonym for home run.
Can of corn. I don't know how the heck you can refer to a home run as a can of corn, but dagnabbit, Hawk found a way. Never change, Hawk, never change.
To further Harrelson's anger, Canha's solo shot turned out to be the difference, as the A's won the game 2-1.
