Back in The Cold
I’m back in Chicago for a few days, mainly to check in with staff and see the installation begin for our brick Champions Plaza at Gate 4, which by the way, is looking very, very cool.
Bricks are going down — weather permitting. Once the palza is complete, the white bronze and black granite center piece will be installed and then covered until the unveiling on April 11.
The final piece is the landscaping around Gate 4, including brick work and installation of special monuments to our retired numbers.
I can’t wait to see it all completed. Christine O’Reilly has been working on this project for two years. Believe me when I say, she can’t wait to see it finished either.
Bourgeios, CF; Cabrera, SS; Thome, DH; PK, 1B; Swisher, LF; Dye, RF; AJ, C; Crede, 3B; Uribe, 2B. Buehrle pitching, followed by Wassermann, Jenks, Logan and Linebrink.
Fit into a White Sox uniform on Friday and was leaving camp on Saturday, so I missed his last day. Good to see RV, who was laughing that he’s even been snowboarding on his "new and improved" ankle.
I met a hero on Friday at our game in Tucson. I’ll write more about Sgt. Del Torro when I get a chance.
I’m back to Tucson (which, sadly, I tend to call "home" during Feb/March) late Tuesday night and will be back working out bright and early Wednesday morning.
