Here is the complete number retirement ceremony for Chicago White Sox great Mark Buehrle which took place before today’s game at Guaranteed Rate Field (still getting used to that) before the Sox took on the Oakland A’s. The ceremony featured several great Sox greats including the team’s all-time hit leader ‘Big Hurt’ Frank Thomas who still referred to the ball park as “Comiskey” plus former coach Ozzie Guillen, Scott Podsednik, and more. It was moving to see Buehrle playful yet humble as he accepted the honor with his family as his side, who mistakenly sat down too early and asked them to stay next to him. Buehrle’s son sang the National Anthem and he caught the first pitch from his daughter to add even more “ahh, that got me” feelings to the day. GO SOX!
