ALVAREZ HOMER LANDS IN BOAT

May 20,2015

Pittsburgh's PEDRO ALVAREZ blasted a homerun out of PNC Park in Pittsburgh, which landed in a boat docked on the Alleghany river.

The Pirates ended up losing 8-5 to the Minnesota Twins despite the long ball.

Alvarez is only the 36th player to launch a ball into the river since the ballpark opened in 2001, but only the third to hit the river (or a boat) on the fly!
