Visionary Einhorn Dies at 80

The White Sox mourn the loss of Eddie Einhorn, a sports broadcasting visionary who was an executive with the Sox for 35 seasons. He passed away Tuesday night.

“Eddie was a creative whirlwind whose ideas–many of them far ahead of their time–changed the landscape of sports, and sports on television, forever,” said Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf. “He was a man of many interests, projects, ideas and opinions, and we all will miss him dearly. It is exceedingly rare in this day and age to have enjoyed a friendship and a working partnership that lasted our lifetimes. We celebrated many great moments together.”

The Sox will wear a sleeve patch during the regular season to honor Einhorn.
