Dave Winfield Public Service Announcement – From the 1980’s

Dave Winfield has always been a charitable guy.  It’s great to see that he began doing what he could to help the community as far back as the 1980’s.

Check out that tuxedo.  It’s really amazing as to what we all thought looked good back then huh??? 

Ticket Stub #7 – White Sox vs. Oakland A’s – 06/16/1990

Ticket Stub #7 – White Sox vs. Oakland A’s – 06/16/1990

Oakland 12 – White Sox 3

This game was big thrill for me.  The Oakland A’s had been to 2 straight World Series – winning 1 and losing 1.  To be able to see a team in it’s prime was extremely exciting.  Adding to that, their roster featured some of my favorite players – Rickey Henderson, Carney Lansford, Mark McGwire, and Terry Steinbach.

There was no bigger highlight than watching Rickey Henderson hit a home run!!!
