On a cold and blustery night …
Quentin, LF; Cabrera, SS; Thome, DH; PK, 1B; Dye, RF; Crede, 3B; BA, CF; Uribe, 2B; Hall, C. Contreras pitching.
We’ve spent most of the day preparing for the unveiling of the Championship Moments monument at 6 pm tonight. It’s a little windy, which will make uncovering the piece of art much quicker, but hopefully rain holds off.
We actually covered and uncovered the piece three times today, which given the wind, was a challenge. The first time was at 8 am to see that the cover fit. The next time was at 2 pm when we tested the unveiling process. The third time was to cover it for the final unveiling.
We expect quite a few fans to come out early and brave the wind (this is Chicago afterall) for the event. Comcast TV will show the unveiling during its pregame show for fans watching at home.
I am looking forward to hearing reaction to the piece from our players and our fans.
My personal condolences to Ed and Barbara Farmer on the death today of Barbara’s mother (Ed’s mother-in-law). He has flown back to California to be with his family. Chris Rongey will fill in for the time being.
