89 WLS Sports Pre Game Show – Wednesday, July 16th – Producer’s Log

Another hot day in Chicago here's what was on tap for today…

HENRY MELTON, Defense Tackle for the Chicago Bears, joined the show to discuss handing out tickets to Bears season ticket holders. Melton's excited about the defense from a pass-rushing stand point. Other teams don't have what the Bears do on their roster. Melton's neutral on being on the franchise tag, “I can’t control it. I wanna be here long term .. all I can do is play.” Melton says the Bears are ready for the season to start.

STEVE STONE, WLS Baseball Commissioner, joined the show to discuss last night’s MLB All-Star Game. Specifically, Mariano Rivera.  Stone says Mo epitomizes hard work and that it's absolutely magnificent he's having one of his best years and understands how game should be played.  Stone liked the fact Rivera was given an appearance in last night’s game in the 8th inning. Rivera was also named the Most Valuable Player of the game. Steve had a bone to pick with Tigers Outfielder, Torii Hunter: Hunter said (It's) still impressive players like Barry Bonds would still hit, even if they did use performance enhancing drugs. Stone said that this disrespects the guys who currently play the game.
