Every kid in the 90s and perhaps even the early 2000s knew who Danny Tanner was. He was the clean freak, family-loving, outstanding father on the hit television show “Full House”. Of course, Mr. Tanner was played by legendary actor and comedian Bob Saget.
Unfortunately, Bob Saget passed away on Sunday at the age of 65. It was very sad to see someone like that go way too soon. The cause of death is still unknown but it is a very sad turn of events no matter what. Saget was loved by many and was considered to be “America’s dad”.
Bob Saget was known for loving baseball. His character of Danny Tanner started the show off as a sportscaster before making his way to a morning talk show. As a sportscaster, he spent a lot of time covering the San Francisco Giants (the show took place in San Francisco).
Saget had his moment with our Chicago White Sox as well. In 2012, he made a visit to Chicago where he paid a visit to U.S. Cellular Field. During that visit, he sang the National Anthem to the Chicago White Sox fans in the stands. He actually did a pretty good job.
The Chicago White Sox had Bob Saget at their stadium back in 2012.
It is sad that Saget had to leave us too early but it is cool that we had that moment with him at our stadium. He sure looked good in the Chicago White Sox pinstripe jersey. It is always awesome when celebrities of his status show up to the ballpark to check out White Sox baseball. It was extra cool in this case because he looked genuinely happy to be there.
It is always tough when we lose people like this as they had a big part in keeping us entertained for a long time. For one baseball fanbase on the south side of Chicago, we can remember Bob through his appearance at our stadium.
Hopefully, his family and friends are able to find peace during this very difficult time. RIP, Bob. Thank you for keeping smiles on people’s faces for a very long time. You will be missed by many fans throughout the world.
