Stop and Remember

Thursday, April 7, 2011


All the hustle and bustle of the home opener, one of the most touching moments for me is always the part of our pregame when we stop and remember all of the members of the extended White Sox family we’ve lost during the past year.

I thought posting those names here as well might reach a larger audience.  Before the fun of the first pitch today, could every White Sox fan take a minute and remember those White Sox players and staff, as well as other Sox fans no longer with us?
