Chicago White Sox Newsbeat

White Sox pitcher Danny Farquhar in critical condition after suffering ruptured aneurysm

The commotion in the White Sox dugout was the first sign something was wrong Friday night.

Sox relief pitcher Danny Farquhar collapsed just minutes after he threw 15 pitches against the Astros in the sixth inning of an eventual 10-0 Sox loss. As the game carried on at Guaranteed Rate Field, Sox trainers and emergency medical technicians quickly surrounded him, carried him into the clubhouse and eventually loaded him in an ambulance.

After performing tests at Rush University Medical Center, doctors found Farquhar had suffered a brain hemorrhage caused by a ruptured aneurysm. As of Saturday afternoon, Farquhar was stable but remained in critical condition under the care of Dr. Demetrius Lopes and the Rush neurosurgical team.

The White Sox ballpark in Chicago that never was and could have changed history

Dayn Perry with a tremendous article on Philip Bess and his attempts to design a ballpark that combined the best of the Wrigley-Fenway-Comiskey era parks along with modern amenities.  He came up with Armour Field and the piece has illustrations of what might have been for the White Sox instead of Guaranteed Rate Field.
