RIP Minnie Minoso, who helped integrate major league baseball in the 1950s as a player for the Chicago White Sox, has died.

The speedy Gold Glove left fielder was a native of Cuba and didn’t speak much English when he came to the White Sox from the Negro League. ``For South Siders and Sox fans all across the country, including me, Minnie Minoso is and will always be `Mr. White Sox,’’ said President Barack Obama in a statement.
