It’s Bacon! I just heard this morning that Gordon Beckham was named the American League Rookie of the Year by the Sporting News. The award is voted on by a panel of 338 players so he was rewarded by his peers. Beckham moved his way up the White Sox ladder this season before quickly sticking with the club. He filled a hole at third base very well. He should be fun to watch develop over time. Bacon is the ninth Sox player to win the Rookie of the Year. The last was current Sox manager Ozzie Guillen. Congratulations Gordon!
