COUNTDOWN TO WHITE SOX OPENING DAY: 89 DAYS

89 days until Opening Day, White Sox fans.

Mike Ditka, the most famous 89, threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the White Sox 1986 opener.

A little more than two months after coaching his Bears to a 46-10 win over New England in Super Bowl XX, “Iron Mike” donned a Sox headband to inaugurate the franchise’s 86th campaign before 42,265 at Comiskey Park.

The Sox lost to Milwaukee 5-3 on a sunny, 70-degree day.
