Eddy attended Saint Francis de Sales High School and was the White Sox bat boy in 1962.
I attended a Veterans Day ceremony in the parking lot of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church this past year 2006. During this ceremony Eddie got some credit for the Chicago White Sox winning the World Series in 2005! Everyone was saying that's right; Eddie was pulling strings for us!
The parish of Our Lady of Guadalupe of South Chicago suffered more war dead during the Vietnam War than any other Catholic parish in the U.S. This monument, erected in the 1970 stands in memory of the sacrifice of twelve parishioners. It is located across the street from the church at 91st Street and Brandon in South Chicago.
Please see the pictures on Eddy's second page.
