On the Road with Southpaw

Southpaw was a big hit yesterday on his “getting ready for Opening Day” tour. The popular White Sox mascot and some of his Sox colleagues hopped on the Red Line near U.S. Cellular Field, rode north, got off at a few stops and passed out baseballs, key chains and shirts.

He had people on the train yelling “Go Sox,” asking about Opening Day, wondering how they could arrange for Southpaw to appear at birthday parties and the workers on the train were having a lot of fun with their celebrity rider. Twitter was also abuzz with Southpaw sightings.

And it’s important to note that Southpaw is not one of those high and mighty celebs. At one of the stops where workers were repainting garbage cans, our hero stopped and helped them out.
