Lofton signs with White Sox

February 1, 2002

CHICAGO (AP) -- Center fielder Kenny Lofton, a six-time All-Star, agreed Friday to a $1.25 million, one-year contract with the Chicago White Sox.

Lofton, 34, spent most of his 11-year major league career in Cleveland. He has a .302 career batting average with 92 homers, 551 RBIs and 479 stolen bases in 1,366 games. He also played in Houston and Atlanta.

Last year, Lofton hit .261 with 14 homers, 66 RBIs and 16 steals in 133 games with the Indians.

``He put up very solid numbers in the second half of last season after battling a rib cage injury before the All-Star break,'' White Sox general manager Kenny Williams said at the team's annual fans' convention. Defensively he still has tremendous range and excellent speed.''

Lofton can earn an additional $375,000 in performance bonuses and $1.4 million in bonuses based on the team's home attendance.

Key Question for Sox Fans:

With Aaron Rowand likely benched, will Kenny Williams cancel that order for extra padding to be installed in Comiskey's center field wall?
