White Sox Reflect On Fan's Death During Friday's Win Over Toronto Blue Jays

There was a tragic moment in the seventh inning of Thursday's White Sox-Blue Jays game, as fan in the front row suffered cardiac arrest. The fan later died at a nearby hospital.

It was a terrible moment for everyone in attendance, and White Sox players reflected after the game. From the Chicago Tribune:

"It was not a good sight. It was bad," Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis told the Toronto Globe and Mail. "I could see the guy pumping on him, doing something where I just knew it was happening too long. I said something to (third-base umpire) Mark (Wegner) and finally I was like 'We've got to stop this thing.'"

"You automatically start thinking of life, you put everything in perspective," White Sox reliever Jesse Crain, who was on the mound at the time, said. "It didn't look good. I don't know what ended up happening but I said a little prayer for him. ... You don't ever want to see that. It's definitely a first for me."
