You telephone the office of the Chicago White Sox, who remain the Chicago White Sox because they threatened to become the St. Petersburg White Sox, but didn't. Had they become St. Petersburg, you wouldn't be telephoning Chicago. Nor would you be telephoning the team at a new park it captured there. A machine answers. If you are interested in season sales, the voice instructs you to press 1. If you are interested in individual game, press 2.

April 4, 1993 | Thomas Gilbert, Gilbert has authored and co-authored four books on baseball history
It has become fashionable to complain that baseball is in decline. Sportswriters everywhere cry that the sky is falling: Games are too long, the sport is selling out to television, clubs are spending themselves into bankruptcy on lazy, overrated ballplayers. As columnist/television commentator Peter Gammons and sports agent Jack Sands write in the prologue to "Coming Apart at the Seams: How Baseball Owners, Players and Television Executives Have Led Our National Pastime to the Brink of Disaster," "No one--player, owner or fan--seems to enjoy the game any more."

Chicago White Sox owners, who have a better offer from St. Petersburg, Fla., have agreed not to move the team if Illinois lawmakers approve a revised lease on a new stadium, Gov. James R. Thompson said Wednesday. "They have given us their word that if we pass this bill, they'll stay," Thompson said. "Better than that, I can't ask." Thompson made the announcement two days after a breakdown in talks with White Sox President Eddie Einhorn and Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf.

Jerry Reinsdorf, who heads the new ownership group of the Chicago Bulls, said Wednesday his group will produce a winner but cannot produce any miracles that will give the team an instant NBA championship. Reinsdorf, the Chicago White Sox board chairman who heads a 23-member group that purchased the Bulls for an estimated $9.2 million, held a news conference to introduce the new owners, 14 of whom are also investors in the White Sox. "We're not in this for miracles," Reinsdorf said.
