#RIP Minnie Minsos

IMG_54102817776935His full name was Saturnino Orestes Armas Minoso Arrieta but everyone calling him “Minnie”

To everyone he was known as Mr. White Sox.

He was always visiting the Locker Room, chatting with players and in Minnie’s way letting them know things that they need to work on.

I got to watch the opening of Sox Fest this year and Minnie was there, and what a cheer went up when he entered the room. His smile lit up the whole place.

Twitter has been full of memories and wonderful pictures. Ron Kittle posted a great picture from The Cell you should check out.

The news that has come form the team is that the boys are taking the news hard, especially Jose Abreu who has cancelled all request for interviews at this time. There are some great video’s at MLB.com

Minnie was 90 and survived by his wife and family who are asking for privacy at this time.
