Very Special Thanks
Saturday, June 4, 2011
Several Sox players, coaches and announcers donated their time, including Matt Thornton, John Danks, Phil Humber, Brent Morel, Juan Nieves and Darrin Jackson.
I walked into the White Sox clubhouse today to encounter clubhouse manager Vince Fresso.
“C’m here,” he said. “Something I want to show you.”
“Is this a good thing or a bad thing?” I asked, knowing the answer.
Vince holds up John Danks’ pinstripe jersey. A broad brush stroke of maroon paint covers the back of the jersey’s right shoulder. Vinnie starts to laugh.
“Someone got a little too involved in today’s appearance.”
So I went to John.
“Now I have to pay for your jersey,” I joked.
“Don’t blame me, it was Thornton,” Danks responded smiling like a 10-year-old.
