The White Sox announced Konerko’s victory over the public address system at U.S. Cellular Field before the gates were opened to the public for their game against the Minnesota Twins. Konerko was standing around the batting cage holding a bat and waved in acknowledgement of the good news. He received a hug from teammate Omar Vizquel.
Konerko entered Thursday night’s game with a .319 batting average, 22 homers and 64 RBIs. He joins White Sox outfielder Carlos Quentin, who also was selected for the AL squad.
“I don’t know how many were multiple voters,” Konerko said. “I’m sure my mom was probably a million of them. It’ll be nice to go back to my own house and sleep in my own bed.”
