    Ron Kittle, former player for the Chicago White Sox, just released his new book.

    Following is an excerpt:

    -----------------

    In Tales from the White Sox Dugout, Kittle tells how he approached the Giant's slugger with a couple of Bonds' game-worn road jerseys, asking him to autograph them for an auction for Kittle's charity for children with cancer:
    "I paid about $110 of my own money for them, so they could be auctioned off at the golf outing. I did that all the time for stars like Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, Derek Jeter and Roger Clemens. When I tell them how their autographs help the cause, every player gladly signs — with one exception. I walked up to Bonds at his locker in the Wrigley Field visitors' clubhouse, introduced myself and said, "Barry, if you sign these, they'll bring in a lot of money for kids who need help." Bonds stood up, looked me in the eye and said, "I don't sign for white people." If lightning hits me today, I will swear those were his exact words. Matt Williams and other Giants were in the room and they heard what Bonds said. Bonds’ spokeswoman and a Giants’ spokesman both declined comment on the story.

    --------------------

    Could Barry have been upset because the kids hogged all the synthetic hormones?

    Seriously....what a jerk.

    The Sox do? As the home team? That's weird. I wonder why.

    Cubs and Sox played two games just a couple weeks ago. It's a chance for the North side and South side to fight without weapons, well usually.

    OK - I think I know where I got confused now. If Kittle - a member of the White Sox - approached Bonds, of the visiting San Francisco Giants, in the clubhouse at Wrigley - home of the Cubs - obviously, the Giants were playing the Cubs, and Kittle was operating as a civilian. He probably had a game across town that same day.

    What's the name of the Sox ballpark now? I know they used to play at Comiskey.

    It's still Comiskey. The Bulls play now at 'United'. (stinky name, stinky company.)
