Fun At the Ballpark
So, I walk out onto the field during BP this afternoon, and the first person who yells at me is my good friend, Moose Skowron.
“Hey, Scottie,” he says, “Look at the scoreboard. Your lineup has two DHs.”
Sure enough, he is correct. So I call the scoreboard room and explain the typo. But then, I had an idea (yes, that happens occasionally).
“Hey, put Skowron in the lineup at DH.”
Minutes later, presto. Moose is in the lineup in place of Teahen. Camera click. He laughs and all of our coaching staff begin to take notice.
“Grab a bat,” Greg Walker tells Moose. “Get up here and take some cuts.”
“Let’s go,” Joey Cora says. “Come on.”
Moose just waves his hand at them and tells me nervously, “You’d better change that.”
Stand Up and Stand Out
Oufielder Juan Pierre, White Sox ACE coach Kenny Fullman and ACE players road the White Sox float in this morning’s Bud Billiken Parade.
Thanks From PK
Paul Konerko met with the sweepstakes winners from the Turn Hollywood Into Pauliewood campaign before the game, thanking each of them personally and presenting each with a signed Konerko jersey and a photo. Of course, those winners represent all of you who voted for Paul and he extends his thank you to everyone.
