High School Baseball Player Breaks Own Car Window With Game-Winning Home Run

There is no better feeling for a baseball player than hitting a game-winning home run. So Tennessee slugger Jameson Painter was on cloud nine when his eighth inning round-tripper put his Chuckey-Doak High baseball team in the lead for good in their game against Jonesboro University High.
