What happens when one of baseball’s best pitchers goes up against one of the best hitters in the league? We’ve seen it many times during the regular season and the post-season. But we’ve never seen it in a game of wiffle ball.

That’s right. At Angels Stadium on September 8 or 9, two winners will get a chance to play wiffle ball with left-handed pitcher Clayton Kershaw of the L.A. Dodgers and All-Star first baseman for the L.A. Angels of Anaheim, Albert Pujols.

Kershaw won the Cy Young Award last season as the best pitcher in the National League and this season he has an ERA of 2.34 and a record of 10-6. Pujols is batting .254 this season, with 70 RBI’s and 33 homeruns. In his career he has batted 553 homeruns into the bleachers.
