Default Sox hire Bill Veeck's grandson

This article is a couple weeks old, but I haven't seen it posted here:

Bill Veeck's 26-year-old grandson -- and Mike Veeck's son -- is now working for the Sox in the group sales department. (Yes, he really goes by the name "Night Train.")

Says Brooks Boyer, White Sox vice president and chief marketing officer, "He was not hired here because of his last name. He's a guy that has shown us a great work ethic and passion for the White Sox and the game of baseball.
I guess the animosity between Reinsdorf and the Veeck family has worn off with time. Though the article says that "one of Mr. Veeck challenges is to boost attendance," it doesn't look like he'll be involved with planning promotions, dressing the team in short pants, blowing up records, etc.
