Alberto Castillo, Orioles catcher

What do you remember about your last major league home run?

It was 2005 off Arthur Rhodes, a walk-off home run in Kansas City. That's a good memory of that day. A Sunday afternoon. I got a lot of phone calls because I slid into home plate. I was hiding from all my teammates who were trying to slap me on my head. I wanted to get down and try to avoid them, but they were hitting me. It was funny. Everybody was asking me, "How can you slide into home plate?"
