Hawk was on the Score this morning and made a point to mention that come January 1st, he will be beginning his 8th decade in baseball.

He probably has some made up “ambassador” job with the White Sox or something he’s using as a technicality. Or he just thinks he’s so important that any time he talks baseball that counts as still working in it.

More money coming in ...



I always thought closing off Gallagher Way and the screen to people without tickets was a Cubs decision, but apparently they have been fighting for it to be open to all (and lost).

yeah the cubs always wanted that to be open and the neighborhood bars fought it. the original plan was for it to be open and then there were meetings with tunney and the neighborhood and crap and it came out that it would have to be closed to ticketholders only.
