Twinkie Town: An Oral History of Nick Punto Sliding Headfirst Into First Base

DOUG GLANVILLE (Phillies centerfielder, 2001): this new kid shows up at the stadium in a tricked-out Bronco, does a power slide into his parking spot and the truck lands right on its roof, between the two parked cars, without hitting either one! Punto kicks out the back window, shouts, “HOT DIGGITY, LET’S DO THIS GUYS! LET’S GOOOOO!” and slides right into the clubhouse. Thought I was hallucinating.
