Today, May 3 2005, will forever be remembered as Hank White Day, in honor of cubs hero Henry Blanco, who scored the only run in a boring and depressing loss to the Brewers.
He also made two great plays at the plate, threw out a runner at third, and did a superb job of handling the firey Carlos Zambrano, who pitched a great game, despite recieving the loss.
Hank's solo shot was his first as a Cub, as well as the first in recent memory.
"I know I hit a home run in spring training this year," Blanco recalled, "but the last time I hit a regular season home run...jeez, I can't even remember."
Well Hank we'll never forget this one.
It wasn't enough to win the game, but it was enough to win you over in our hearts forever.
