Happy Mother’s Day
To all moms … enjoy your day.

Let’s hope last night’s ending gets JD rolling …
Walkman … the White Sox have walked just 22 times in the last 12 games (1.8 per game), all without Jim Thome in the lineup. In the first 21 games, all with Thome on the roster, the White Sox drew 97 walks (4.6 per game).
The White Sox are tied with Boston for third in baseball with 11 come-from-behind wins … Atlanta (13) and Tampa Bay (12) lead.
With 23 solo home runs (out of 37) the Sox rank third in the AL behind Tampa Bay (28 of 43) and Toronto (24 of 40).
On 5/13/57, White Sox pitcher Bill Pierce became the first member of the organization to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
Earlier this year, our sculptor borrowed Bill’s 1959 uniform and game glove to use as models for Pierce’s sculpture, which will be unveiled on July 23. I met Bill and his wife Gloria before the game last night and passed the items back to the lefty.
I brought my 10-year-old to the game with me today. During BP, Ozzie gave Taylor the pink wristbands he was wearing for Breast Cancer Day. Made Tay’s day.
