Look out, Yoán: How many of us have pictures with our favorite players? Even though Sean is gunning for Yoán’s job, he’s got one. (Sean Williams)
Sean Williams is a writer and photographer based out of Arizona, and despite just joining us, and the site itself being three weeks old, he’s now provided both photos and writing to South Side Hit Pen. There’s a chance you might see him just stretched out on a cot in the Camelback Ranch parking lot, Sean is at the diamond so often in spring, Arizona Rookie League and Arizona Fall League. Sean’s a former Loop Sports writer and currently contributes to Future Sox as well, and keep it on the QT, but he saves all his best stuff for us!
Take a moment to look over Sean’s first piece for us, on Jimmy Cordero, published Friday morning, and look forward to some great work from him this fall, offseason and on forward.
And of course, take a moment to say hi to our newest staff member, Sean Williams!
White Sox fan since 1993
First White Sox memory Frank Thomas throwing me a baseball at a Crosstown game when I was younger. I went to a lot of games as a kid, but that was the first one that I vividly remember.
Favorite White Sox memory 2005. I was old enough to enjoy the moment, but I’d love to get that same feeling back and experience it these days.
Favorite White Sox player Yoán Moncada is my favorite current player, but Frank Thomas is my favorite player of all time.
Next White Sox statue Hawk Harrelson
Next White Sox retired number José Abreu (assuming he sticks around for a little while longer).
Go-to concession food at Sox Park I haven’t been to the ballpark in a few years, but there’s nothing better than a hot dog and a beer at a baseball game.
Favorite Baseball Movie Moneyball. I loved watching the advanced way of thinking and roster building throughout that movie. Plus, Chris Pratt playing Scott Hatteberg was always funny to me.

South Side Hit Pen on the diamond Third base. My quick reaction time will allow me to handle any screamers hit my way, and I have a strong arm to make any throw across the diamond. Sorry, Yo-Yo. I’m coming for your job!
True or false: Every jumbled pile of person has a thinking part that wonders what the part that isn’t thinking isn’t thinking of. True … I think? Maybe False? Screw it, I’ll flip a coin to decide.
