Dear White Sox Fans,
Thank you for all your votes and for helping me become
a 2006 American League All-Star. Being selected as one
of the Final Vote nominees was special, but to be
selected as an All-Star by the fans -- over four very
talented and deserving players -- is truly an
Ever since I joined the White Sox, it's been one dream
come true after another. From the amazing 2005 season
and a World Series title, to this year's great start
and now my second All-Star berth, I'm so fortunate that
I found a place I can call home. The White Sox have
the best fans in the world, and your support for me
during these past few days just proves how passionate
and dedicated you are.
I'll do everything I can to help the American League
win the All-Star Game and secure home-field advantage
for the World Series. Hopefully, it will end up
benefiting the White Sox come October!
Thank you again, White Sox fans!
