How is manager Robin Ventura winding down the final days before Chicago White Sox pitchers and catchers report to spring training? By vacationing across the pond and taking in some world-class soccer competition. Ventura and wife Stephanie attended Wednesday's English Premier League game between host Arsenal and Liverpool as part of their trip to London. Arsenal rallied from a 2-0 deficit to earn a 2-2 tie on the pitch at Emirates Stadium as both teams failed to improve their bid for a Champions League berth. Sox pitchers and catchers report Feb. 12 to spring camp in Glendale, Ariz., with the first full-squad workout set for Feb. 17.
Different kind of pitch for Ventura in London
