In Support of Minoso

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

As many of you may know, the White Sox are doing all that we can to get behind our living legend, Minnie Minoso’s candidacy for the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Minnie is one of ten candidates on the Golden Era ballot for contributions made to the game of baseball from 1947-72. Voting will take place next month at the Winter Meetings in Dallas.

Our efforts have included the launch of www.whitesox.com/minnie, a website dedicated to chronicling Minnie 17-year baseball career. It includes testimonials, career highlights, archival video and audio clips, photos, an interview with Minnie and more. Check it out when you have a chance.  You may be surprised by Minnie’s myriad accomplishments and contributions not only to the White Sox, but also to the game.

In addition to the website, we also are hosting a “Minnie Minoso Hall of Fame Forum” this Thursday here at the ballpark. The event will be hosted by ESPN’s Pedro Gomez and will bring together the baseball statistical community, historians and former Major Leaguers for a discussion around Minnie’s Hall of Fame candidacy. Minnie also will be in attendance to share memories from his record-setting career.

We’ll be live-tweeting the event via @whitesox, as well as posting photos and videos to whitesox.com and our official Facebook page, so be sure to follow and “like” us!

Of course he should be inducted! A legend and pioneer, Minnie is bigger than baseball and has an important story to tell to the new generation of fans.

Is there someway or some site where fans can buy his authentic jersey. I would buy that instantly. That would be so cool to have a 1959 style jersey of Minnie Minoso. Please make this happen white sox, take care of the fans, like you want us to take care of minnie.

Great Forum today!

Time for another howdy-doo. and a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone out there in White Sox Land….. j.k.

I agree Minnie had a great career and has his numbered retired yet you can’t buy his jersey anywhere. If people started wearing his jersey he would get more support.
