Warren Newson: Man Before His Time

This post refers to southsidesox.com

Jim Margalus has an excellent piece of early 1990s White Sox outfielder Warren Newson. Nicknamed “The Deacon”, Newson is one of those players I remember from my childhood.

Margalus puts together an excellent piece that seems to illustrate the fact that Newson was underrated and underutilized. He fits the mold of the kind of player teams overlooked back then, low batting average with a high on-base percentage.

Great blast from the past.
