VIDEO: White Sox's Alejandro De Aza Turns Infield Fly Into Double

White Sox center fielder Alejandro De Aza earns points for not using "Alejandro" as his at-bat music. He also deserves credit for providing the South Siders with a player who resembles what our brain tells us a leadoff hitter should look like during the first month of the 2012 season. Also: an .814 OPS. That's also nice. On Tuesday night, during a rain-lengthened game at U.S. Cellular Field, De Aza pulled off one of those curious occurrences that can only happen in a sport as weird as baseball.

In the third inning, De Aza popped up to the third baseman. Because Chicago was facing the Cleveland Indians, this means he ended up on second base with a double.
