COUNTDOWN TO SOX OPENING DAY: 95 DAYS

95 days til Opening Day, Chicago White Sox fans!

Sox owner Bill Veeck had a 95-degree day in mind when he revealed his short-pants plan in 1976.

“Players should not worry about their vanity, but their comfort,” Veeck told the press. “If it’s 95 degrees out, an athlete should be glad to put on short pants and forget his bony knees. Hell, I’ve got a worse-looking knee than any of my players. It’s solid wood.”
