White Sox to wear Negro Leagues uniforms against Tigers

The White Sox will wear uniforms honoring the Chicago American Giants as they head to Comerica Park for the 22nd Annual Negro Leagues Tribute Game against the Detroit Tigers Saturday on CSN.

The Giants formed in 1910 and quickly became one of the most dominant Negro League teams, winning seven League titles and two Negro League World Series titles. The team disbanded in 1952.

Saturday marks the fourth time (2007, 2008 and 2011) the White Sox have honored the Giants by wearing replica uniforms. 

The Tigers will pay tribute to the Detroit Stars by suiting up in their throwback uniforms. In addition to both teams wearing throwback uniforms, the Tigers will welcome several former players to Comerica Park to celebrate Negro Leagues Weekend.

Melvin Duncan, Minnie Forbes, Eugene Scruggs, Bill Hill, Walt Owens, Pedro Sierra, Ron Teasley, Jake Sanders and Johnny Walker will be among the nine Negro League players recognized during a pregame ceremony. Ron Teasley, a Detroit native and former Negro Leagues player, will toss the ceremonial first pitch.

CSN's White Sox coverage on Saturday begins with Pregame Live at 2:30 p.m., followed by first pitch at 3 p.m.

Yoan Moncada goes to Carolina Panthers preseason game: 'Don't understand anything'

Yoan Moncada just started his rehab stint with Triple-A Charlotte and it didn’t take him long to enjoy a night in Charlotte.

The Knights had a home day game on Friday. Moncada went 1-for-5 in his first game action since suffering a hamstring strain on July 30.

With the Knights game ending in the afternoon, Moncada had the freedom to go to the Carolina Panthers preseason game at night.


The Panthers lost 27-14 to the Bills, but a peak at Moncada’s Instagram story from the day showed he may not have really understood what was going on.


The 24-year-old Cuban was decked out in a Panthers jersey. He still may be learning football though.
