Folks:

The latest interview is up at White Sox Interactive for your enjoyment (I hope...LOL)

It's with former Sox outfielder Mike Hershberger who was a part of perhaps the greatest three year run in franchise history in the period 1963 - 1965.

He also talks about one of the toughest managers to play for in Al Lopez.

Mike was also a part (although he didn't know it at the time) of a 'power struggle' that was taking place between manager Chuck Tanner in 1971 and the organization.

And finally what happened the night of his final game in the big leagues is both funny and painful at the same time!

Here's the link to the story:

If I recall, he was also on that As team that ate our lunch in 1967 (the first year I followed the Sox) and, with the Senators, arguably cost us the pennant.

I'm really looking forward to that interview.
Thanks Lip.
