White Sox expected to retire Paul Konerko’s No. 14

Paul Konerko said he’d play in the last homestand of his career if it meant “taking the three ugliest swings and striking out.’’ Thankfully for the retiring White Sox captain, it shouldn’t be that ugly.

Hawk Harrelson did something awesome for a White Sox fan

During Tuesday’s A’s-White Sox game, Hawk Harrelson did something great for a White Sox fan and his son sitting in the crowd.
