In movies with hit men, the phrase "Anywhere but the face" comes into play frequently. But invoking that axiom would take some of the awesomeness away from a monster home run Adam Dunn of the White Sox hit Monday night at Toronto. Dunn's blast to center hit the scoreboard at Rogers Centre, specifically a part that was showing Dunn's own bearded mugshot at the time.

Yes, Dunn hit his own face with a home run. That's got to be the best bat control ever. Watch it clank off his massive upper cheek, in all of its majesty:

In the face! Yes, in the face! Guesstimates pegged the distance at 469 feet, but can we trust traditional measurements in a country that prefers the metric system? I think it went 469 meters, myself. That's possible, eh?

Dunn truly is slugging like his old form — and definitely was the face of the White Sox offense Monday. He hit two home runs against the Blue Jays, accounting for the only two runs Chicago scored in a 3-2 loss. Dunn leads the league with 33 homers in 491 plate appearances after connecting only 11 times in 496 plate appearances in 2011. You can't hit your own face with a home run when you're slumping like that.

City of Broad Shoulders and Big Faces, indeed.
