Pierzynski said he was driving to Goodyear Ballpark in the city of Goodyear Wednesday when he was pulled over by an Arizona Department of Public Safety officer and issued a ticket for driving 10 mph over the 65 mph limit, the Chicago Tribune reported Thursday.
"I loved it when he said, 'Oh, you play for the White Sox?'" Pierzynski said. "I said, 'How did you guess?' Figure it out."
The catcher said he will pay the ticket, which he said was the subject of teasing at the hands of his teammates.
"They said in the dugout they would get a collection up if they let the cop taze me," he said.
