Why did the White Sox rush out of the clubhouse on Tuesday afternoon almost 30 minutes earlier than usual?
Big meeting on the field? Major announcement? Team photo?
None of the above.
The Sox filed out early in order to catch outfielder Brian Anderson's workout video on the Jumbotron at U.S. Cellular Field.
"I'm just going to wear it,'' Anderson said from the dugout while his teammates lounged and laughed in the outfield grass. "I make fun of people all the time, so it's about time somebody gets me back.''
That "somebody'' was White Sox catcher Toby Hall, who acquired the video of Anderson working out near his off-season home in San Diego.
It was pretty basic stuff _ Anderson lifting weights, doing cardiovascular work, even rolling a giant truck tire.
But it was the dramatic slow-motion shots and background music from the movie "St. Elmo's Fire'' that made for some enjoyable viewing.
