1998 Lemon Chill #22 - Charlie O'Brien

On this day in 1998, Charlie O'Brien made his White Sox debut, going three for four with one RBI helping the White Sox win their Opening Day match against the Texas Rangers at the Ballpark in Arlington by the score of 9-2. O'Brien had the highest batting average of any player on the field after this game.

Charlie enjoyed his highest average since his rookie season with the Oakland Athletics in 1985, during his time with the South Siders. O'Brien played in fifty-seven games for the White Sox before being traded to the Anaheim Angels for two minor league prospects on July 30, 1998.
