Sox Fest 2015

IMG_657629113138827The girls and I gathered to watch the opening ceremonies of the Sox Fest taking place this weekend in Chicago.

The opening video gave us all chills and a few comments that the tears has started (me included).

Getting to see the boys past and present was really great, with this being the 10 year anniversary for the winning of the 2005 World Series. Scotty Pods is a hottie

When Rick Hahn was introduced he got a nice cheer, I even let out a nice job mate

Adam “Sparky” Eaton is a power house packed in a small package. Now if he can only stop running into walls.

The girls who were able to attend, posted pictures about the seminars that they attended, and how the vibe was in the room. Everyone is fitting well together and there was a new excitement.

One my Sorority sisters got the best gift, she got to say “Thank You” to Scott Podsednik for his walk off home run. It was the last game that she attended with her Dad before he passed away. Scotty hopped off the stage and gave her a kiss and a cuddle and whispered “Your Welcome” in her ear.

I can’t wait for the season to start. This is the first year since I have been following the boys that everyone I talk to or heard so much excitement from the coaching staff with this new group. If they are excited then we need to take our cue from them.

This morning we got an interesting piece of news, Gordon Beckham who had been traded to the Angles, as of today is now back in black. It is only a years contract but he is back home and Dayan Viciedo has been designated for assignment.

20 days and counting til the boys reports for spring training…….How excited are you?

 

Save This Date – May 23, 2015

It was announced by the White Sox that #14 Paul Konerko’s number will be retired before the game against the Minnesota Twins, a 3:10 game start.

Tickets are available now, and I would move fast  because this game will sell out.

In other news: Javy Guerra, Nate Jones and Hector Noesi have all avoided arbitration.  Only Tyler Flowers and Jeff Samardzjia are left to go through the process.

@jordans_wish  –  is fighting the good fight against Cancer, PLEASE tweet him some love. We do not know how much time he has left.

Sox and Hall of Fame News

Happy 2015

Some of the boys have already reported to a mini camp going on now. Getting back to training, meeting some of the new guys and have seen an interview, that some of the young guys are enjoying camp and being able to talk to the more experienced players, getting advice on hitting and they are needing to work on.

The Hall of Fame Class for 2015 has been announced with Randy Jackson, Pedro Martinez, John Smoltz and Craig Biggio. July 26, 2015 has been reserved for the induction ceremony in Cooperstown. Don Mattingly was on the ballot for the 15th and final time.

Sox Fest will be a blast this year. Celebrating the 2005 World Series with many members of the team coming along to celebrate. Many of the new guys to the team including, Jeff Samardzija, Dan Jennings, David Robertson and many others. For those of you lucky enough to go, have a blast.
