Guillen learns lesson from Ali visit
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen previously has met Muhammad Ali, although those past encounters didn't make Tuesday morning's meeting with the boxing legend at Camelback Ranch any less special. But Guillen felt the overall discussion taking place for close to 45 minutes, moderated by Ivan G. Blumberg, the CEO of Athletes for Hope, was the truly amazing experience.

"All the meetings we have here, I think this was the best one I ever heard in 30 years in Spring Training," Guillen said. "One of the things I get from that meeting is you're never wrong.

"You know whatever you do to the community, whatever the reason it is, you're doing it. And that's why this guy has inspired a lot of people to do it."

Guillen added that he learned a little something extra about his crew simply by listening to thoughts expressed by players such as Brent Lillibridge and Lastings Milledge during Tuesday's meeting.
