Ventura hosts acting partner at home opener
CHICAGO -- The home-opening, 5-2 victory for the White Sox on Friday was a special day for Robin Ventura, who returned to U.S. Cellular Field as a triumphant manager. It also was a memorable day for Emily Beazley, a special guest of Ventura.

Robin met Emily in December when Ventura flew in from California so they could make their appearance in A Christmas Carol at the Goodman Theatre. Beazley, who is nine years old, is a Chicago native and a strong White Sox supporter. She had been recently diagnosed with Stage 3 non-hodgkin's lymphoma and her appearance in A Christmas Carol with Ventura was part of the Goodman Theatre's partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation

On that same night of their theatrical debut, Ventura invited Emily and her family to the home opener. Ventura arranged for a limo and suite tickets for Emily's family to enjoy the victory.
