Remember that time a pastor exchanged a souvenir for a chance to sing at Wrigley Field?

Josh Vitters is a talented kid -- he was the Cubs' No. 1 overall Draft pick in 2007 -- but he's struggled in his first Major League action, carrying an .091 batting average into Monday's game.

Then he went and blasted his first career home run. Playing on the road against the rival Brewers, the 22-year-old got the ball back thanks to a stroke of luck -- a pastor from a Lutheran church, who happens to be a huge Cubs fan, caught the ball and returned the souvenir to Vitters hoping for a chance to sing the national anthem before a game at Wrigley Field in exchange.

Vitters got the ball. We'll have to wait and see if the pastor sings.
