World Series champs to be honored by Bush
CHICAGO -- The World Series champion Chicago White Sox will be honored Monday by President Bush during a visit to the White House.
The White Sox ended an 88-year championship drought when they swept the Houston Astros. They made several major moves during the offseason, including re-signing free agent Paul Konerko, trading for slugger Jim Thome and starting pitcher Javier Vazquez, and letting go two-time AL MVP Frank Thomas.
Manager Ozzie Guillen also became a U.S. citizen.
Bush is a former Texas Rangers owner.
