2003 White Sox/Legends Annual Cookout Series

Last season, the White Sox and Legends (then the Yankees) managers, Stephen Boudreaux and Chris Mileham agreed to begin an annual event to honor baseball, family, friends, and our community.  The two teams would have their annual double-header and hold a cookout between games.  Last season, the situation was perfect.  The baseball was nearly perfect as the two teams split the double-header.  This year the Sox and Legends were headed in opposite directions.  The Legends were stacked with talented youth and even acquired cagey veteran, Troy Flood, from the White Sox in a trade prior to the start of the season.  A great team gets better.  The hapless Sox went down in both games as reported by Legends manager, Mileham:

Legends 8  White Sox 0

White Sox 3  Legends 11

Legends win the first of two 11-3. Doug Carnett pitch a complete game striking out ten White Sox on his way to his third win. Legends took full advantage of White Sox's ace pitcher being absent and scored every inning but the third. Steven Becker did what he could to make it tough on the Legends striking out five batters.

Legends win late game 8-0 behind the pitching performance of Chuck Stracener who struck out seven batters in four innings. Legends Stracener helped in his own cause going three for four. The Legends feel fortunate to slip past the Sox twice this weekend by catching the White Sox not at full strength.

 

But the cookout was grand.  It was a cliche day where it didn't matter if you won or lost, but that you got to play the game of baseball with your fellow man on a glorious day.  (see last year's cookout report)
