Default Ed Herrmann Update.....

Fans:

Just heard from Barbara, Ed's wife. Ed as many of you know, was found to have cancer three years ago, he is still fighting it and is going through different treatments.

Barbara set up this page for Ed at this site so Sox fans can keep up on his progress: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/edherrmann

Naturally as this time I'm sure Ed would get a big kick out of hearing from as many of his former fans as possible. If you want to pass along good thoughts, prayers or just a friendly hello, it would be much appreciated.

Here is the link to the long interview that I did with Ed for White Sox Interactive:

I'm planning on calling him Monday.

Many thanks!

Lip

When I went to my first Sox game, he hit a home run. That is when I realized the Sox were more fun than the Cubs (I was a wee one who liked fireworks).

Ed whacking them off the right field Tigers stadium facade, I remember most.

Wish Konerko, Lollar and Herrmann were about the same age, Id pay to see them in a 90 ft race.

Default Ed Herrmann

What I remember the most about Herrmann was he was one of the best catchers I've seen on blocking home plate when a runner was trying to score. He wasn't afraid of anyone sliding into him at home plate. He was one tough guy.

That's why his nickname was "Fort".

Feel free to pass along these rememberences at the web page his wife set up for him.

Ed seemed like the Harley type, bless his heart. Hope he rebounds.
