White Sox continue to collect former Dodger catchers

Following last year's signing of Sandy Alomar, Jr., the Chicago White Sox have signed Toby Hall as a backup catcher to A.J. Pierzynski.

Hall signed a 2-year deal worth $3.65 million.

Hall will be missed by few and forgotten by many but I will always remember the excitment he brought every 5to15 days, it was an intangible effort by the Tobster that drove the Dodgers to take the NL Wild Card.
I will miss the epic chant that would frenzy Dodger stadium, "Toe-bee, Toe-bee, Toe-bee..."

I hope the South Side gets as much from the Tobster as he gave LA in his short but legendary stint and I hope the Tobster recieves the same amount of love and admiration that over-flowed on a daily basis out in Bluetown.

Tobster, I hope the media embraces you as tightly in the windy city. What will become of the sports section? Without the Tobsters consistent accomplishments I fear the paper will slip into a fog of half witted hack columns.

Toby Hall
