The Chicago White Sox is a team that has a lot of players that have fun personalities. They also seem to enjoy each other’s company which is great because that makes it easier to work as a team during the toughest of times. Few show that off more than closer Liam Hendriks.
Hendriks had such a good year in his first go-around with the White Sox in 2021. He won the Reliever of the Year Award and even received some votes for the American League Cy Young Award. He deserves a lot of praise for his dominant play.
Off the field, Hendriks is outstanding and a lot of fun. He posted a picture on his Instagram on Tuesday that was so cool to see. It was him alongside Garrett Crochet, Andrew Vaughn, and Ryan Burr at the hockey game between the Montreal Canadiens and Arizona Coyotes.
In the photo, Crochet and Vaughn were wearing normal street clothes. Hendriks, however, was wearing a Canadiens sweater while Burr was wearing a Coyotes one. Burr was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks before the White Sox acquired him in a trade so that might explain the love for the Coyotes.
For Hendriks, his wife is from Montreal and she got him into hockey and the Canadiens were the obvious team to root for. Seeing these guys enjoy another sport together is cool because it means that they are hanging out together outside of baseball.

The Coyotes and Canadiens are the two worst teams in the National Hockey League which is funny because it actually was a decent matchup going in. Liam came out the happiest as his team won the game by a final score of 5-2. Each team has the draft lottery on their mind more than any of these regular-season games.
As of right now, a lot of players are in Arizona because that is one of the best places to train during the winter. The facilities, however, are locked to MLB players because of the lockout so they have to find their own ways so they can be ready in case labor peace is reached. Hopefully, these guys are able to keep enjoying themselves while being ready for what we hope is the 2022 MLB season.
