Golf Outing Highlights
A number of White Sox players and coaches donated their off day yesterday to the annual Chicago White Sox Charities Fields of Green golf tournament at Harborside International Golf Course in Chicago. The tournament helps CWSC raise funds to support cancer research at University of Chicago and Northwestern Memorial hospitals. CWSC hopes to raise over $1 million for the first time ever in 2005.
Highlights of the day (other than didging some rain drops) included a 247-yard three wood by Paul Konerko at Starboard No. 18 to help his group to an eagle. Jermaine Dye’s group captured the rain-shortened event. Ozzie Guillen, Harold Baines and Tim Raines played, as did Cliff Politte, Chris Widger, Jon Garland, Aaron Rowand, Freddy Garcia and others.
Carl Everett drew appause as he rode one of the raffle items, a mountain bike, around the clubhouse during the live auction.
Thanks to all who donated time or contributed to CWSC by playing in yesterday’s outing.
