1. What is your name? Jody|
2. Where are you from? Originally Chicago but in DC right now.
3. What is your favorite team in the AL Central? Sox
4. What is your second favorite team (inside the AL Central or not)? Adopted the Nats as my National League team.
5. Who are your 3-5 favorite players? Currently, Thome, Konerko, Dye, Church and Zimmerman
6. What is your favorite baseball moment since 2000? No question here- World Series, Game 2, Pods walk off homer. My sis and I were up 10 rows from first base and it looked like that ball was in the park. The whole section was quiet until we realized it was out of there. Pure joy after that.
7. What is your favorite baseball moment from the 90's? This just barely makes it: July 1, 1990, Yankees' pitcher Hawkins pitched a no-hitter, but the Sox still won on errors, 4-0 in the 8th inning. The 4-0 loss was the largest margin of a no-hitter loss in the 20th century, and Hawkins became the first Yankees pitcher to lose a no-hitter. The next year, MLB changed the definition of a no-hitter to require that a pitcher throw at least nine full innings and a complete game. Since Hawkins played for the visiting team in the game in question, the White Sox never batted in the ninth inning, Hawkins lost the credit for his achievement. My dad took me to that game. I remember my dad looking at me as the events of the 8th inning unfolded and saying, "Remember this, this game is going to mean something." He was right.
8. What is your favorite baseball moment of all time? See above- just going to Sox games with my dad in general. My dad can't make it to the games now, bad hip, so my sis and I go. I come in once a month and we see a game, except for July when she flew out here and we saw them choke at Camden.
9. Who is your favorite baseball player (that is retired)? Fisk.
10. Name one or more players that you feel have been left out of the hall of fame but deserve to be in it. Not sure.
