Many of you saw the article on our website or saw the pregame tribute or listened to Ed and Hawk last night, but Andy Lock, our longtime scoreboard cameraman, passed away on Wednesday prior to the game. He was just 52.
Andy worked for the Sox (as well as Bulls, Bears and Blackhawks) since 1990, was a 10-time employee of the homestand and covered something like 180 sporting events each year and something like 1,280 Sox games during his career.
Even more important, he gave freely of his time and expertise on behalf of others in need, working for decades on events like an annual Easter Seals telethon.
There were many tears shed here over the last couple of days and Andy will be missed.
