The Chicago White Sox will dedicate the entire month of September to honoring 1B Paul Konerko. They just displayed a gigantic sign outside of U.S. Cellular Field thanking Konerko for his tremendous years of service on the South Side.
The White Sox announced that there will be two special seating sections, nicknamed “Club Konerko” that will allow ticket holders to those sections to pick up special collectible items before the game.
Jerry Reinsdorf commented on Konerko’s character and importance to the White Sox organization:
For our organization and for White Sox fans everywhere, Paul Konerko represents class, hard work and leadership. Paul always has played for the love of the game and the competition. Honoring him during the final month of his career is only a small gesture of gratitude for a player who will go down as one of the greatest in White Sox history.
