Jake Peavy pitched with his Gold Glove in a game originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

It's not everyday you see a former Gold Glover using their actual Gold Glove in a game. In fact, I'm not sure it's ever been done before Jake Peavy did it on Monday.

The former White Sox ace took the mound for the Savannah Bananas donning the gold glove he won in 2012 while pitching on the South Side.

The Bananas are known for their on-field hijinks that go viral in baseball and sports Twitter. Basically, the Harlem Globetrotters of baseball.

Just recently a batter did ballet on his way up to the plate -- and he got a hit. Another netted a single using a flaming bat. Another pitched on stilts.

As for Peavy, he retired in 2016. Peavy pitched on the South Side for five seasons, 2012 being his best campaign. In 2012, Peavy was named to his last All-Star Game and won his lone Gold Glove award.

Peavy ended his White Sox career with a 4.00 ERA and a 36-29 record as a starter.

The White Sox would trade Peavy in 2013 and he would go on to win the 2013 World Series with the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox then traded Peavy mid-season in 2014, and Peavy went on to win the 2014 World Series with the San Francisco Giants.
