The World According to PK
The Sox Captain shares 16 years of memories with Paul Konerko Day just a day away.

Gifts All Around
Children Home + Aid presented Paul & Jen Konerko with a home plate and DVD for their support of the Bring Me Home Campaign. And the White Sox gave the organization a $25,000 check from the sales of the PK Final Season Bobblehead.

Plays of the Day
Jose Quintana pitched well enough to win in his 7.1 innings of work, but unfortunately he absorbed the loss in last night’s defeat at the hands of the Royals…Josh Phegley belted a two-run homer, his first of the year, off of KC starter James Shields (click on link below).
Chris Bassitt’s Season: “Frustrating and then Awesome…”
Many have said that Avi Garcia wields a big bat, but I’m not sure this is what they meant.
