I congratulated both Mark Buehrle (All-Star) and Paul Konerko (three homers) this afternoon. Wish Paulie would have gotten that shot at No. 4 last night!
I always get shaky when I write it, but … Rogers says we should be fine weatherwise tonight.
Arrived and is wearing uniform No. 57 for your White Sox.

If you are a season ticket holder or already have tickets for that game, just shoot me an email and I’ll see how we can make it work for you.
Double Duty Classic
And stop by the ballpark at 1 pm on Friday to watch some of the top inner-city talent in the country take part in the Double Duty Classic as players wear throwback uniforms from the Negro Leagues. It’s a great option for young kids and a great way to sit close to a ballgame on a beautiful day (we hope) at USCF.
In The House
Roland Hemond is in the house today to join Jermaine Dye in presenting scholarships to the University of Phoenix. Roland has long seen the University of Phoenix as a way for professional baseball players to finish their degrees during the playing careers so that they have something to fall back on post career.
