Beckham, Poreda, Flowers Among 18 Invited to Sox Camp


The Chicago White Sox have agreed to terms on minor-league contracts with 13 players and will invite them to their spring training camp in Glendale, Ariz.

White Sox likely playing last home game at TEP today


Ten years and one month ago — to the day — 11,298 fans filled Tucson Electric Park. It was our big-league coming-out party. The Chicago White Sox, fresh off the moving truck from Sarasota, Fla., played the first-year Arizona Diamondbacks on an unseasonably cold night. Ticket scalpers sold $14 seats for $50. TEP was praised as a $37 million, state-of-the-art baseball jewel, something Tucson could take pride in. That was only 10 years ago. In baseball terms, it might as well be 100.
