Ladies and gentleman, White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson has finally homered.
Sitting on a 2-0 count in the bottom of the first inning against the Cleveland Guardians on Saturday, Anderson launched a 90 mph fastball over the left-field wall at Guaranteed Rate Field. The solo shot was good for 429 feet off lefty Logan Allen.

It's been a grueling season for Anderson, who's reportedly on the deadline trading block. Slashing a mere .245/.286./.293 with just 19 RBI through 81 games, the two-time All-Star was visibly emotional rounding the bases for the first time since July 15, 2022. His teammates mobbed him in the dugout after he crossed home plate.
Anderson is batting .351 since the All-Star break, which is good news for the White Sox whether they trade him or not.
