Default Pierzynski Returns as Sox Ambassador

The Sox' Facebook page is reporting that AJ Pierzynski is back with the organization as an ambassador. One of my favorite players. This is great news, IMO.

Welcome back, #12!

If this is a consular ship, where is the ambassador?

I hope AJ also continues to work as an analyst. He's quite good.

How appropriate. AJ was always an uber villain to opposing fans.
I'm a big fan of his playoff work on Fox and would love for him to be the color man to replace Stone eventually. Bennetti/AJP would be a solid booth, IMO.

AJ was (and still is) one of my favorite baseball players ever, so this is exciting news! Hope this means his presence in the ballpark will be considerable this coming season.

Nice to see them both returning. (Contreras is back as well as ambassador and working with the Spanish-speaking kids at all levels) They were winners and right now winners are needed at every level of the organization as they start to turn this around.

I wonder if they'll see Ambassador Pippen at cabinet meetings.

With the loss of Moose and Minnie the past few years, this is great news.

Love any role AJ has in organization. Personally I think hes be a great manager someday, but he may have no interest.

Man, I hated him so much in 2003. Now I own two Pierzynski jerseys. Who could have guessed then that he would go on to be a White Sox legend.

Hes always been a smart guy, this is a easy money gig. I bet he wont be a Minnie or Kittle like ambassador more like a Jackson or fisk type. This also keeps his foot in the door if something in the Sox organization comes up.
