We’ll have more on Paul Konerko during this, his final weekend in Major League Baseball and his final weekend as an active Chicago White Sox, but make sure you click on the image above and see his goodbye to White Sox fans, its a good one.
His finale may not have the dramatics of that other guy in the Bronx, but like Derek Jeter, Konerko came to help define his franchise in recent times and he’s acted as nothing less than a winner worthy ambassador for the game of baseball. We’ll miss both guys, but only Konerko gets to rep the South Side for the rest of his life and that makes him extra special around these parts.
Salute, Paulie. Right back at you.
