Chris Colabello is a great story. After toiling in independent ball and the minor leagues for eight seasons, the 30-year-old finally made his major league debut with the Twins last season. This year, he's absolutely mashing, with nine doubles and 26 RBI in just 20 games headed into today.

Colabello came through with his most memorable major league moment to date during last night's Twins victory over Tampa Bay, blasting a home run right as his mom was being interviewed on TV.

I watched it live, and was amazing... On Mom's birthday, and while she was being interviewed

One time I hit a foul line drive into a pretty decent sized crowd, my mom walked away from it with the biggest bruise ever....it was not her birthday.
