I wonder if most Sox fans even remember him. I barely do.

I remember him, thought he was going to be a great leadoff man, hitting for a high average with lots of SBs while playing a great center field.

I remember he and Daryl Boston battling for the CF job in 1986. I remember his small stature and his batting stance that made his strike zone even smaller. And in 1997 I remember delivering pizza to his home in Orland Park. He tipped me with an autographed photo.

I remember going to a game his rookie season and he made an outstanding catch against the CF fence the Yankees that garnered him a standing ovation from the crowd. After he got to his feet and was a little surprised or shocked by the reaction of the fans he glanced up at the scoreboard and watched the replay of his catch and kind of shrugged it and grinned like it was just another day at the office.

I also remember watching a game on tv and he got HBP on his right arm just above the elbow and when he trotted down to 1B the camera zoomed in on him and the 1B coach checking out the spot where the ball hit him and you could clearly see the imprint of the laces on the baseball imprinted on his arm! Iíve never seen that before and Iíll never forget it.
