Congratulations to Scott Podsednik
Congratulations to left fielder Scott Podsednik on being elected the 32nd player on the American League All-Star Team tonight.
The announcement was made as Scott took the field in the third inning tonight. As the fans stood and cheered, Scott tipped his cap to the fans and teammate Aaron Rowand ran up and hugged his outfield partner.
Kudos as well to everyone who had a hand in making this possible. First off, Sox fans were amazing in their commitment to this campaign and their willingness to devote hours and many sore finger tips to make this happen for Scott. No one should question the number, commitment and Pride that Sox fans show after seeing what they accomplished at the ballot box over the past three days.
The team was incredible as well as guys sat in the clubhouse voting time and time again. Joe Crede’s back is sore, so he sat out batting practice and voted over and over again. Mark Buehrle, Paul Konerko and Jon Garland were as happy for Scott as they were when they were named to the team. Everyone contributed. One of the fans who commented on this blog asked for examples of this year’s chemistry … tonight was it.
Way to go Scott and way to go Sox fans.
