    2005 Sox Rewind

    The person who threw out the first pitch for this game (7/6/05) was former Negro Leaguer Teddy “Double Duty” Radcliffe for his 103rd Birthday. When he was 88 in 1990, he was robbed and beaten at a South Side project. The Baseball Assistance team found him housing thereafter. When he was 97 in 1999, he appeared in a professional game for the Schaumburg Flyers. Starting with his 100th Birthday in 2002, he’d throw out the first pitch at a Sox game each year on his birthday. He had been a frequent game-goer through the years. Someone who would be 118 years old today was a part of the 2005 Sox season.
