From the Weight Room
White Sox strength and conditioning coach Allen Thomas spoke with a Sox TV crew this morning and talked about the team’s commitment to the weight room and to being in shape.
“They are probably the best group I have seen in my 16 years,” said AT of this year’s Sox squad. “Usually, I would come in at 6 a.m., and some of the team would start coming in around 7 a.m. to work out. Now they are in the weight room at 6 a,m.
“Everyone agrees,” he said. “Ozzie, the whole baseball group, and myself, this is one of the better conditioned teams we have seen.”
