Major League Baseball is currently in a lockout. It has been no fun to be a Chicago White Sox/baseball fan since this happened in early December and it doesn’t sound like it is going to get better overnight. Players and teams are not allowed to have any contact which really makes the offseason hard for both sides. Hopefully, they are able to come to a resolution too.
One thing that suffers a lot during a lockout or a strike is content. We all love seeing our favorite teams on our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagrams but that hasn’t been happening a lot this offseason. It has mostly been dry since the lockout started.
Minor League Baseball is not locked out which means we could start seeing some content from the teams about the top prospects. When that happens, it is always exciting because we will take any baseball talk at any point.
The White Sox are hosting a Mini Camp right now at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona. They posted a video on social media of Colson Montgomery taking some batting practice and he was looking good. At the end of the video, a very important person made a very quick cameo.
Tony La Russa had a funny cameo in the Chicago White Sox social media video.
It was very interesting and funny to see Tony La Russa come in and look directly at the camera with a smile. It was a very unexpected laugh for White Sox fans who just happened to be scrolling on a Tuesday night.
It is also comforting that the Chicago White Sox are able to be with the guys who are playing at a Minor League level right now. Getting those guys ready for 2022 is one of the most important tasks of the year right now. Until the lockout is over, you can say it is the number one task.
Colson Montgomery is also looking really good which should make Tony La Russa happy. He may not be the coach of this team by the tie Montgomery makes it up but you never know. Either way, the foundation that La Russa is helping lay down is something for Montgomery to learn from so this is great to see.
Hopefully, there are more great moments like this to come in order to get through this lockout. It is very nice to see Tony La Russa enjoying this job and taking it seriously even during a time where he can’t talk to his MLB players.
