As Chicago starts warming up, we got a chance to check out SoxFest 2012. There was a lot of great energy from the fans, but definitely  some uncertainty about the direction the line-up will take this season. Nevertheless, the fans came out to meet the players, get autographs and acquire great memorabilia from the Garage Sale that donated part of the proceeds to charity. There were several panel discussions and sessions about the teams history and direction for 2012. One of my favorites was about the 2005 season, where Pablo Ozuna and several other key players talked about the historic season. We also got exclusive video interviews with shortstop Alexei Ramírez and outfielder Dayán Viciedo. We asked them about the new management, what they do to prepare for the season. Alexei gives us his thoughts on Latino baseball and some of his favorite ways to experience Cuba in Chicago.
