Recommended Posts

This is nice.

 

The rate for SoxFest 2015 ranges from $389 to $528 for a two-night stay at the Hilton Chicago and up to four SoxFest weekend passes. Weekend passes for adults have been reduced over 45 percent to $40, while the White Sox offer a new $20 pass for kids (4-13 years of age) – resulting in over $100 savings for a family of four from last year’s weekend passes. Weekend passes – including special Friday night access and a limited-edition SoxFest premium item – only are available for purchase by fans who book the two-night stay through whitesox.com/SoxFest.

He's going to be lifting weights and eating cheeseburgers in prep to pitch 240 innings (playoffs included, duh) in 2015.

Lest we forget Iguchi's 3 run bomb in the 2005 playoffs against Boston http://m.mlb.com/cws/video/v36935789/2005-...tadahito+iguchi

 

or his wild 2 HR 7 RBI in the 8th and 9th against Houston in 2006 ( solly no video ).

 

He continued to play in Japan, even last year. Here's a video of a walk off grany. The full AB and the crowd singing and chanting the entire AB just amazes me.

Maybe that'll buy K-Rod for the 8th inning. That'd be pretty cool.

White Sox have announced an expanded list of current and former players scheduled to appear at SoxFest 2015, including: White Sox pitchers John Danks, Zach Duke, Dan Jennings, David Robertson and Jeff Samardzija; White Sox prospects Tim Anderson, Courtney Hawkins, Micah Johnson and Carlos Rodon; White Sox greats Bo Jackson, Ron Kittle, Carlos May, Bill Melton, Minnie Minoso and Billy Pierce; and assistant hitting coach Harold Baines.

Not sure if they've brought out that many prospects in the past, but that's the past 3 first round picks, and the guy they pegged as the 2B of the future. I have a feeling Micah would be on the opening day roster if he could just have a solid but not spectacular Spring Training.

If Micah could be a productive major league player he'll be a fan favorite in Chicago with his looks. If he's an All Star the national media will love him. I posted a video of an interview with him in the hitters mini camp thread.

I am becoming a fan of his already, and I think the media will like him too. He's a pretty intelligent, likable dude with a lot of aspirations in life. I don't think this has been posted on here yet, but he's definitely paying a lot of attention to what Hahn and the team have been doing so far, and hopes to become a GM himself someday.

The tidbit on his 40 yard dash and olympic weight training is also interesting, and could potentially make him a power and speed guy rather than just a speedster.

He's 6'0, 215 right now and running a 4.4? Good god that's insane.

 

By all means, the kid is definitely a serious athlete. If he was a running back in football, he'd be an elite prospect.
