Thursday, June 25, 2009
Pods 7, Missile 6, JD 9, Thome dh, PK 3, AJ 2, Getz 4, Fields 5, Wise 8. Richard pitching.
How great to see our 1959 heroes — Bill Pierce, Jim McAnaney, Jim Landis, Jim Rivera and Luis Aparicio (and their better halves) — at the ballpark this morning in honor of the team’s 50th anniversary of that amazing pennant-winning season. (50 years!)
The group is going to say hello to Ozzie and our current players, visit with the media, take part in the pregame celebration (which includes each of the five throwing a first pitch to a member of our 2005 World Series Championship team) and then go upstairs to a private, small autograph-signing for fans that benefits Chicago White Sox Chairities.
Future game rosters were announced today with C Tyler Flowers (USA) and 3B Dayan Viciedo (World) representing the White Sox.
