If only Jerry Manuel would've started Buehrle in Yankee Stadium, the Sox would've been 10 time defending world champions of pizza by now.

Sorry my memory failed me, that Bill Sharp throw out to home plate
happened to close the 10th inning, a walk-off put-out if you will.
It was a strike, all the way from warning track.

Was the Opening Day HR in '92 or '93? I can't recall. If it was '93, it's a perfect 20th anniversary moment.

It was '93. He was out all of '92.

What?

I'm sure his significance as an insanely popular two sport athlete helped endear himself to the fans in Chicago as well but there is little beyond that. I don't think Sox fans are calling for his number to be retired or a statue to be built.
You put my thoughts into words way better than I did.

It means absolutely nothing who throws out first ball for home opener. That was solidified in 2003.

I understand. I just don't see the point in questioning Bo's place in White Sox history. He was an important part of a great team, and hip injury or no, one of the greastest athletes in the history of this planet.

That ball by the way is adhered to Bo's mother's tombstone. Bo had told her that he was going to make it back to play baseball. When she passed he had it fixed to the gravesite.

I think it's bronzed.
