With the Opening Day return of Daryl Boston as the new first base coach of the White Sox our Sox/Oak Park trivia machine went whirring and came up with this.

At some point in the mid-1980s three White Sox players lived in Oak Park at 100 Forest Place, the apartment high-rise at Lake and Forest. Since they weren't superstars, they may have shared an apartment. They were Daryl Boston, Kenny Williams and ???

Your humble reporter was fairly sure the third player was Thad Bosley, but sadly actual research on the topic suggests that Bosley was gone before Williams and Boston made the roster.

Williams, of course, has had a more successful career as a baseball exec than as a player. He was the GM of the Sox until the past year when he stepped upstairs to a new post in the Sox hierarchy.

I'm guessing this was late 80's. Assuming salary, race, and position played a part in shared living arrangements (rookie?), and the fact this player attended Triton, I would put my money on OneDog...Lance Johnson.
