Congrats to our former Chicago major league baseball players who earned World Series rings when the San Francisco Giants topped the Texas Rangers in Game 5 of the World Series last night. Former Cubs players Mike Fontenot and Mark DeRosa and former White Sox players Aaron Rowand and Juan Uribe each won world series rings with the Giants win. It was the 1st World Series rings for each of Fontenot and DeRosa. Rowand and Uribe each played pivotal roles in the White Sox World Series win back in 2005.
Uribe started all 5 World Series games for the Giants – he had 3 hits (including a home run in Game 1), 3 runs scored and 5 RBI’s.
Rowand played in 2 World Series games for the Giants and had a pinch-hit 2-run triple in Game 1. He also scored a run in Game 1.
Fontenot came into the Giants’ Game 2 9-0 win as a defensive replacement and did not earn an at-bat.
DeRosa has been hampered by injuries each of the last 3 seasons. He played in only 26 games for the Giants in 2010 because of a wrist injury.
Congrats guys – you all deserve it!!!
