Sox Star Pitcher Suspended for 5 Games for Shredding Team Uniforms
The White Sox have suspended ace Chris Sale five days as punishment for the All-Star's destruction of uniforms the team was scheduled to wear the previous night. Sale was scratched from Saturday's scheduled start against Detroit after he reportedly cut up several 1976 throwback jerseys during batting practice in protest of the collared uniforms, which he deemed uncomfortable. The left-hander will forfeit $250,000 of his $9.15 million salary and was also fined in the amount of the destroyed jerseys.
