The Chicago White Sox are a team loaded with talent. They are also a team loaded with great personalities that are fun to watch play baseball. Each and every person on this roster serves a purpose both on and off the field.
Few players have ever been as important as Jose Abreu. His play on the field has earned him the respect as one of the greatest players to ever play for the White Sox. He is certainly one of the ten greatest players in franchise history.
He is also so much fun. For a long time, we have seen Abreu play with a smile on his face each and every day. It doesn’t seem like there are any players in the league that enjoy the game more than this guy. He has really become a leader on this team as a result.
In 2020, we saw a little bit of how much the game of baseball means to him when he won the American League MVP award and he was super emotional. That level of emotion shows almost every time he is out there.
We saw this fun side of him really come out in Wednesday’s game against the Detroit Tigers. The season hasn’t been what the White Sox expected so far but Abreu is going to be one of the guys to help them turn it around.
He was the designated hitter in this game when he is normally the starting first baseman. It was a hot day and Andrew Vaughn decide to help him out by building him a fort for when he wasn’t hitting. Abreu looked very comfortable under the towel.
Jose Abreu is so much fun for the Chicago White Sox on and off the field.
It is key to see this team having fun and success will follow. It is no coincidence that the White Sox won this game to complete the sweep over the Tigers. They also did it in dominating fashion by a final score of 13-0.
Jose Abreu was clearly relaxed when he got to the plate every time too. He had four hits, one walk, two RBI, and three runs scored. It played a huge role in them getting the big win and the sweep of the series. Not only is he so much fun, but he is also an elite player that helps them win.
