He's from Iowa, he might be a legend there.

Besides college sports, there isn't too much to follow in Iowa. He was probably a fan when he was a kid.

When he's raking shots all over the Cell for the Sox, you'll see as many buses from Iowa at the Cell as you see at the Urinal. Iowans are loyal to a fault.

The Sox did have their AAA team there for some time in the 70's until 1980 or 81.

The guy is from Iowa, he's spending the off season at home, and they probably offered him an appearance fee.

I think this is very cool. His presence will only emphasize the difference between the Sox and the SCrubs.

This is hilarious...who ever said cubs fans and the always sold out wrigley is full of tourists, out of towners, and iowans....hahaha they have their own cub convention in their boring state. On a similar note there was a group of Iowa State students at the same ski resort i recently visited, all of them cubs fans. I asked why not sox, its the same city the same distance away from your homes in iowa. The response was either WGN, someone took me to wrigley long time ago as a kid, or cuz they are cool. I giggled and showed them the World Series tropy pic as the wallpaper on my phone. They grunted and I smilled!!

If we could not use the words Iowa and college sports for the next few weeks it would be greatly appreciated. Im mourning that awful Illini effort this afternoon

I don't blame him. It's Iowa. They treat you like a king there. Isn't that right, Randar? :cool:

There's a Cubs convention in Iowa? How come I wasn't invited! By the way, whenever someone asks me what Iowa is like, the first words out of my mouth are, "well, it's not Fantasy Island". Then again, what place is?

You people are dissing on Iowa like it's some bad state.. i've noticed that some of you are from Indiana that are making fun of Iowa...

I just have one thing to say to you.... HOOSIERS!

Hoosiers made Indiana out to be a bunch of hicks! At least Iowa lets the Black Sox play at their baseball field! haha

I was never bored when I lived in DuBuque. DUHAWK PRIDE.


On second thought, it is pretty boring. (Except for the college towns).

Does anybody else remember the old Royko columns in which he first ripped on Indiana (chiefly because of the 500-mile race) then later confessed he had confused Indiana with Iowa?

I find it a bit hard to believe myself, that the Cubs would hilite an up-and-coming WHITE SOX minor leaguer in one of their farm teams' fan convention.
Then again, the CUBS have always been known to covet everything the White SOX have and do.............

I'd like to respond but I really have no clue what this guy is trying to say.

Making fun of a state that has "hicks"? And you're from Iowa? WOW.

Yea, Bloomington, Indiana is anything but hicks. I won't deny some parts of Indiana is backwaters, but Bloomington isn't one of them. Great little college town with a 20%+ post-graduate degree rate.

This is the ultimate compliment to the Sox - they need a marquee player to draw cub fans so they go with a Sox prospect. LOL. I can appreciate the jibes on Iowa as a native but remember shoeless joe hangs out in dyersville.

I am looking forward to the time when ryan is hitting like a new age Baines at Sox Park.
