You can eat a hot dog with pastrami bacon at White Sox games this year. And it is absolutely delicious.
I had a chance to play food critic on Tuesday as the White Sox opened the doors of U.S. Cellular Field for a ballpark tour and sampling of the new eating options. I sampled the aforementioned hot dog with bacon pastrami (seriously, it's awesome) along with the Balkan hot dog (cevapcici) and a varying assortment of meatballs.
It wasn't the healthiest lunch ever, yeah, but it was tasty. There are healthier options -- the Sloppy Janes and baked potatoes looked pretty good -- for the record.
But the coolest thing looks like the addition of giant caricatures of Dick Allen, Goose Gossage and Bill Melton that'll be racing around the warning track every Sunday home game. Check the slideshow for images.
The White Sox home opener is Friday, so you can check all of these out for yourself then.
Former White Sox pitcher Daniel Webb died at the age of 28 in an ATV accident on Saturday night, according to Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis.
Davis called it a “tragic accident, and we should rally around the family.”
Webb, a Paducah, Ky. native, was with the White Sox from 2013-16 and went 7-5 with a 4.50 ERA.
The White Sox released this statement:
Daniel left many friends within the Chicago White Sox organization, and we are all shocked and stunned by the news of last night's terrible accident. He was a terrific young man with a full life ahead of him. All thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends as they deal with today's tragic news.
