The new biography out on Veeck (which I though was excellent BTW) mentions that Veeck actually attended his last couple of ball games at Comiskey Park. He started boycotting Wrigley after they began selling bleacher seats in advance and returned to Comiskey as the lesser of two evils in his mind.

Bill's widow, Mary Frances, was also presented with a World Series ring in 2005.

Based on those two tidbits, I'd agree the animosity was with Einhorn, not the entire organization.
