Was Danks good at Whiffle Ball? Did u notice the talent back then?
Well, it was a long time ago, and he was about 15-16 or so while I was more like 10-11. His brother Jordan Danks(U of Texas outfielder) was there too. I probably couldnt have told you both would be big time baseball players, but yeah, they were good. BUt of course, being that much older than I, you would expect that.
Anyway, interesting story: John is the dad in the family and was a 3 sport star at U of Texas if Im not mistaken. Very athletic. Then, of course, there is John who pitches for the White Sox. Jordan is a first team All American Freshman, big time player at Texas. But from what I hear from the relatives of them who live in my home town, the little sister is the best athlete. I think she is 12 or 13, and apparently dominates on the volleyball court. No joke.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.
