Being a White Sox fan who was already familiar with most of the names and episodes in the book, I was entertained and enjoyed revisiting the topics and personalities Gonzales chose to include. I did pick up some additional tidbits of knowledge. This book is primarily geared to the Sox teams of recent memory, particularly over the last years.
Gonzalez examines many recent events, most notably the White Sox World Series Champions - the only team since the Yankees to hold first place all season and then sweep the World Series.

We also get a look the team in the 's, the white flag trade, and some of the recent squads that challenged but as so often happens came up short. The author devotes far less attention to the long history of this proud but rather hard-luck franchise.
Overall the book is revealing and easily read, although it does suffer a few minor factual errors. Still, this book should be of clear interest to White Sox fans. See all 5 customer reviews. Write a customer review. There's a problem loading this menu right now.

Harrelson, less so. It does appear as though Benetti is covering most, if not all, of the home games at this point. It might make sense to revisit this ranking in the near future.
Personally, I think Hawk does several great things. All his nicknames, his calls and the excitement he brings when the White Sox are doing well are all great. You can read about the entire list here.

Fortunately, he chose the former. Well, the former chose him, as Ruiz hit the diminutive Torreyes with the third pitch he threw him — a 95 mph fastball that forced home the game-winning run.
The celebration had to be halted ever so briefly for replay to confirm Torreyes had been hit, but once the Twins got the go-ahead, Sano hoisted up Torreyes and the team flooded the area around first base with all of the different food and drink items found in a typical MLB dugout. That was pressure for the pitcher, but all that matters was that we got a W today. You want to get him up and give him a chance to do that. He gets hit. Who knew? Despite Cleveland beating Detroit earlier in the evening, the Twins took another step foward — and slashed their magic number to seven.

You had to experience that game and feel it and go through it and feels the ups and downs. It would have been easy to just end the game, go up and take three bigs swings or whatever, a few outs and it would have been over because it was a long and not an easy game. They went out and had some really impressive at-bats over and over again and put ourselves in a spot to give ourselves a chance to actually win that game and we did. How could he not?
