Notes and Things
Each of the White Sox first eight batters last night reached base … the last team to accomplish the same was Baltimore on 7/22/06 at Tampa Bay … the last time the White Sox enjoyed that type of first inning was 6/30/72 vs. Oakland.
Joe Crede said his family thoroughly enjoyed the All-Star experience, shooting plenty of home movies and video.
I asked JD if he thought the airplane message was over the top. He just laughed, which I took as a good sign given the other options, all of which included at bat.
Tomorrow, we will unveil a life-sized sculpture of franchise legend Harold Baines tomorrow prior to the game. His sculpture, which will be located on the main concourse above right field, joins Charles A. Comiskey, Minnie Minoso, Carlton Fisk, Luis Aparicio, Nellie Fox and Bill Pierce.
In addition to Harold’s family, Robin Ventura, Carlton Fisk, Daryl Boston and Ron Kittle will be joining Harold for the ceremony. Warner Saunders of WMAQ TV will MC the program.
The White Sox are 27-12 vs. AL Central foes this season (19-3 at home).
Since May 14
The White Sox own the best record in baseball at 37-20 (.649), topping the Angels (34-21), Cubs (34-23), Boston (33-23) and Tampa (33-23).
The White Sox winning percentage has improved (from this point of 2007) by .127, second-best in baseball behind only Tampa Bay (.191) and ahead of St. Louis (.088).
