An employee here received an email from his friend showing a clothing store front window in Maastricht, The Netherlands. Call it Sox appeal …
For those of you who weren’t in the ballpark, earlier in the week, Carl Everett received a very mixed reception from Sox fans, while Jim Thome received polite, but not overwhelming applause.
We do have a pregame video planned for when Frank Thomas returns to USCF with Oakland on May 22. Our game operations staff also has a one-time wrinkle planned that I think fans will enjoy.
You are correct in noticing that White Sox home games on WCIU are now available in HD. In fact, all Sox home games — whether on WGN, Comcast or WCIU — are now in HD.
I made the jump to HD in July last year. It is truly amazing for sporting events. Other times, I catch myself and my kids watching HD programming we would never generally watch but the picture is just so compelling. The other day, I was watching something like "A day in the life of the rain forest" when I had to catch myself.
Speaking of catches
People around here were still talking about Brian Anderson’s layout catch in center field the other night. Amazing: 350K
Congratulations to our fans … we just sold out two early May games against the KC Royals. Attendance for the three-game series against the Angels are strong. Tickets do remain, so act quickly and act now.
Allow me to toot our own horn for a minute …
We consistently rank among MLB’s leaders in dollars spent with minority and female-owned companies.
"It’s really simple," says chairman Jerry Reinsdorf every time he is asked. "It is good business. Like anyone, the White Sox want as many qualified suppliers as possible bidding on our business."
