General Manager Jim Frey lost his struggle for control of the Chicago Cubs and was replaced by Larry Himes, former general manager of the Chicago White Sox. Frey took over as general manager after the 1987 season, but his power eroded in a battle with former club President Don Grenesko. Frey, who has a year remaining on his contract, was demoted to senior vice president and will report to Himes. Himes built the White Sox into a contender but was fired after the 1990 season.

In the final hours of Comiskey Park, before baseball is replaced by the wrecking ball, the Chicago White Sox continue to work on a new foundation for their new home.

Jeff Torborg emerged from his office in the Chicago White Sox clubhouse to find a group of reporters waiting. He surveyed the crowd, scowled and returned to his office, slamming the door behind him. In other years--1989 for example--this might have been construed as a hostile act; a manager retreating to his bunker to avoid unwanted questions. But not in 1990.
