A group of White Sox players, led by Scott Linebrink, visited Walter Reed Army Medical Center today before our game to spend time with military personnel rehabbing and recoverng at the hospital. One participant in the visit called the experience, “life-changing.”
Joining Linebrink were Javier Vazquez, Mark Buerhle, Jim Thome, John Danks and Horacio Ramirez, along with Staci T from our CR staff.
Along with many White Sox staffers, we travelled to Kankakee this morning for Andy Lock’s (aka Andy Cam) funeral service. Gene Honda, one of Andy’s best friends, read a nice note from Ozzie Guillen to the family, and just to show you what kind of team we have, Mark Buehrle and Jim Thome both sent the family flowers for the service.
Andy as very active in the annual Easter Seals telethon in Kankakee. Anyone interested could certainly make a donation in his name to that great cause.
It has been a day to remember what is most important in life … your family, friends and those who are willing to donate their time, energies and even their lives, for others.
