White Sox Lineup
Pods, LF … Iguchi, 2B … Rowand, CF … Konerko, 1B … Dye, RF … Everett, DH … AJ, C … Crede, 3B … Uribe, SS … Buehrle, LHP.
Aaron Rowand was decked out in Bears apparel before the game. With batting practice cancelled because of the rain (players hit under the stands in our cages), guys sat and watched the Bears/Bengals game. Rowand lives and dies with the Bears.
The team leaves after today’s game for Detroit.
John Rooney calls his final regular season home game today and will throw out the ceremonial first pitch before today’s game. We will miss his voice on Sox games …
At The Gate
With last night’s sellout (18th of the season), we have drawn 2,312,431 fans for 79 dates, the fourth-highest total in franchise history. Thanks, Sox fans, for all your support in 2005.
With 93 victories, this year’s White Sox team is tied for 12th-most in franchise history. Five teams won 94 games (last in 1993) and just five teams won 95 or more games. The 1917 Sox team, the city’s last baseball World Champions, is the only one to reach the century mark with a 100-54 mark.
