Konerko: No plans beyond 15th season with Sox
February 17, 2013
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - White Sox slugger Paul Konerko knows the end of his playing career is in sight. He just doesn't know how close that might be.
The 36-year-old Konerko said Sunday he has not made any plans beyond this season, his 15th with Chicago. Konerko, the last remaining member from the White Sox team that won the World Series title in 2005, says he has considered life after baseball and he's ``not afraid of that. I'm not scared of it.''
Konerko says younger teammates tease him about being the old man in the clubhouse. He has 422 career homers - 415 with the White Sox - and is approaching several team records held by Frank Thomas.
Konerko spoke to the media before the White Sox held their first full-squad workout of spring training.
