Hawk Harrelson to retire after the 2018 season

Hawk Harrelson is not everyone’s cup of tea. Most White Sox fans I know love him, but most non-White Sox fans find him to be . . . something less than tolerable. To each his own, I suppose.

But no matter where you fall on that spectrum, you’ll either be forced to live without Hawk or free of him forever following the 2018 season:

He’ll be on an abbreviated schedule next year, working only 20 games.

Hawk is 75 years-old now and has been working Sox games for over 30 years. The guy is entitled to some retired life. Maybe he can spend some time putting [the puck] on the [shuffle] board . . . yes!
