The White Sox did a great job paying tribute to the 10th anniversary of 9/11 here at U.S. Cellular Field before this afternoon’s game against the Indians.
The Sox were in New York City a decade ago preparing for a series against the Yankees.
On the center-field video screen, pitching coach Don Cooper, a native New Yorker, director of team travel Ed Cassin and broadcasters Hawk Harrelson and Ed Farmer reflected on being in New York during the terrorist attacks.
The White Sox also saluted 10 members from each branch of the military (Air Force, Army, Marine and Navy) and members of the Chicago police department, fire department and pilots and flight attendants from United and American Airlines.
This is a day of reflection, but Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said every day is a good day to remember 9/11.
“We don't have to wait for Sept. 11 to remember,” Ozzie said. “I think every day we wake up, we remember that day. If for some point or somewhere, we see somewhere, it's always back in our mind. That's not a good thing but it's a good thing for us to make sure we don't forget what happened that day.”
