GO! GO! White Sox!
Went to the last Saints game at Midway Stadium last night. Got a shot of Mike Veeck being interviewed in the same spot where he watched the 1st Saints game there. A lot of people told him it would never work. He showed them. The guy in the white hat is Bill Murray.

Big man Sievers did his best to build little Albie’s morale last year when Pearson was grabbed by a dismal slump in early June. He was hearing his erstwhile pals, the bleaeher fans, grumble and yell, “Back to the Little League, Albie.”
“Don’t listen to them,” Sievers told Pearson, “These are the same guys who were telling me a year ago, when I was leading this league in homers, not to sign another contract for less than sixty thousand dollars. Now I hear ‘em yelling: ‘Sievers, you’re overpaid.’ “
