There is a tremendous story on Mike Veeck and his relationship with his daughter, Rebecca, who has lost her site in this week's Sports Illustrated. It's the issue with Lance Armstrong on the cover.

Lots of pictures, also includes talk about Bill and the White Sox.

May I also recommend reading Mike's interview with WSI:

That was a great article and I recommend it for anyone wanting a touching story with a baseball flavor.

The article in Sports Illustrated was very touching, and I reread your interview also, Lip. Wonderful job.

I'm not just being a pain in the patoot, but do you mean she lost her sight? A site is a location, and the way this reads I'd think she lost her spot in Sports Illustrated.

A lot of us who post a lot in the internet use the term web site or just site so much that we automatically type that rather that sight or cite. I've done it literally dozens of times, probably hundreds.

I have met Mike a few times ( last time 2 months ago at a book signing in Chicago ) What stunned me was he remembered our first meeting in Popano Beach 15 years ago.

He is involved with a minor league club south of Boston

Very quietly Mike just put this together which is wonderful.
