Chicago Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf has been in charge of the team for over 30 years, and on Monday he was recognized for his accomplishments and named as part of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame’s Class of 2016.
Reinsdorf also owns the Chicago White Sox, having purchased the team from Bill Veeck in 1981. The team also built a new stadium under his guidance, and they’ve also won a championship with him at the helm, capturing the 2005 World Series title.
Hill plunked Eaton with his first pitch and hit Jose Abreu two batters later, but escaped unscathed with a pickoff of Eaton at second.
The 36-year-old Hill, going on regular rest and the 10th A’s pitcher to start the opener in the past 11 years, threw 36 strikes among his 66 pitches.
He had started just four games in the majors since 2009. Hill went 2-1 with a 1.55 ERA in four starts last September for Boston. He signed a $6 million, one-year deal with Oakland in the offseason.
The third inning went 41 minutes with 80 pitches, eight hits, seven runs and three errors.
The Chicago Bulls need to win, and they don’t care how.
Jimmy Butler made a tiebreaking jumper with 3.7 seconds left, and the Bulls beat the Indiana Pacers 98-96 on Tuesday night to snap a four-game losing streak.
