Minnie Minoso spent nine full seasons with the Chicago White Sox during a thrilling and successful career that spanned seven decades, winning the 1951 AL Rookie of the Year award and hitting over .300 eight times. A seven-time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove Award, the Havana, Cuba, native ranks fifth on the White Sox career list in both RBI (808) and extra-base hits (474). In honor of his illustrious career, Minoso’s uniform number (9) was retired by the White Sox in 1983. He was elected to the Chicago Sports Hall of Fame in 1984 and the World Baseball Hall of Fame in 1990, and he has served as an ambassador for baseball and a community relations representative for the White Sox since his retirement from the game.
A one-of-a-kind person and player, Minnie is more than worthy of being a Hall of Famer, and he has a great chance to make it as a “Golden Era” ballot finalist this year.
