Aaron Rowand wants to pass on his baseball knowledge and remain a family man.
His new opportunity with the White Sox affords him the chance to do both.
The White Sox named Rowand, who got a taste of the role last spring, as the team’s new minor-league outfield and base running instructor on Monday.
His schedule calls for Rowand — who played five seasons with the White Sox, including winning a World Series title in 2005 — to work with the organization’s players in spring training, sporadically throughout the season and then for a month in September and October at instructional camp.
“I really enjoyed myself last year in spring training out there,” Rowand said on a conference call. “And to be given the opportunity to go out and do what I really love doing, which is coaching, and also have the opportunity to still spend some time at home with my son, who is going through his baseball stuff right now at 11 years old — it’s a blessing."
