Love the White Sox appointments of A.J. Pierzynski as team ambassador and Omar Vizquel as Class-A Winston-Salem manager.
As usual, there are more to the stories.
Pierzynski, baseball's top agent-provocateur during his South Side days, is a natural for the glad-handing job. Remember, the Sox had to restock ambassador positions after the deaths in recent years of Minnie Minoso, Billy Pierce and Moose Skowron. A.J. can tell endless versions of his feat as the only man to ever legally "steal" first base, victimizing the Angels in the 2005 American League Championship Series.
