Minnie Minoso died today
« on: March 01, 2015, 09:35:34 am »

Sad day for baseball and White Sox fans.  Awesome player and even better ambassador for the sport.  You could always see him at White Sox events and games decades after his retirement.  He was the first black player for the White Sox and paved the way for Cuban and latin players in the league.  He'll be missed.

My first thought when I saw the news, was that he wasn't going to get to sign a minor league deal to get another professional at bat in 5 years.

Really, though, an important figure in the history of the game.
