Congrats to Minnie!

I had not heard of this yet, and there is no more deserving person.

Congrats to Minnie, indeed!

I've met Minnie on numerous occasions. He's one of the great ambassadors of the game. He was also my first hero on the Sox when I was five years old. I couldn't be any happier for him.

Score one for the Southside. Minnie has always been a favorite of mine; and what an honor!

Congrats Minnie!

Congrats to a guy who deserve more HOF. If any of you guys are going to spring training for the first time, Minnie often walks around the park and talks to everyone. He is a true gentleman and a White Sox immortal.

Congrats to Minnie Minosa.......My grandfather used to talk about you sometimes. I wasn't around when you played the game but it seems to me that you were one of the greatest players to ever wear a WhiteSox uni........:bandance:

Quoted for truth, and possibly an understatement of the year already. :wink:

I feel sorry for those of you who did not get to see Minnie play. He played the game with a joy that just showed through his every move on the field. When Ossie says you got to have fun when you play, the perfect example was Minnie. He and Nellie Fox are my all time favorites. Not the most talented, but the ones who gave every bit they had.
