David Reinsdorf, son of White Sox and Bulls Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf, passed away Monday. He was 51.
The Reinsdorf family issued a statement through the White Sox on Monday about the tragic loss.
"The Reinsdorf family has suffered a terrible loss today with the untimely passing of son David Reinsdorf, age 51. Jerry, Martyl and the entire Reinsdorf family appreciate the sympathetic thoughts and prayers from all of their friends and acquaintances, however, the family members do request privacy and your understanding at this time as they deal with this very personal loss."
The White Sox held a moment of silence before their game against Kansas City on Monday afternoon at Camelback Ranch, and after the game manager Robin Ventura offered his condolences to the Reinsdorf family.
"It’s tough any time anything on the outside, it just wakes you up for what’s important," Ventura said. "I think it’s sad around here just because it’s Jerry and how much people care about him and his family. It’s a tough day for us."
