NEW YORK -- Aaron Rowand, the White Sox fan favorite for five seasons and one of the many contributors to the 2005 World Series championship, was in attendance at Yankee Stadium on Friday in preparation for his fill-in radio color work with flagship station WSCR 670-AM on Saturday and Sunday. Rowand has enjoyed spending time with his family while away from baseball, bringing his 7-year-old son to Yankee Stadium on Friday, but the affable outfielder with 136 career homers and two championship rings isn't quite ready to say his playing career has concluded.
"I'm going to keep my options open as far as next season goes," said Rowand, who was in Spring Training with the Marlins this year. "But it would have to be the right situation in the right spot.
"There's not too many of those out there right now that I can envision myself going and doing. So, as of now, I'll say no, but I'm not going to make anything official until probably Spring Training next year some time."
