Kittle used to set off the scoreboard at Comiskey Park with his roof shots. He currently serves as a White Sox ambassador.
Kittle was one of baseball’s best sluggers his first three years in the Major Leagues. He won the American League Rookie of the Year as a member of the 1983 AL West Champions. It was the White Sox and Chicago’s first postseason baseball since 1959. He hit 93 home runs and drove in 232 runs in his first three seasons.
He was traded to the Yankees at the 1986 trading deadline. Kittle would have two more stints with the White Sox before retiring after the 1991 season.
