Delmon takes flight

Delmon Young started what should be a stellar career Tuesday.

The Chicago White Sox welcomed him to the majors by hitting him with the first pitch of his first at-bat. (I wonder if Ozzie Guillen stood at the top step when it happened and held his hands high in triumph. What a glory hog.)

Delmon may have struck out in his next at-bat, but responded with the first of many, many home runs in the sixth inning.

He could have made a first-inning catch that would have taken away a Chicago home run. He looked like he didn't jump, but I think an unfamiliarity with Comiskey Park (or whatever it's called now) and the fence aborted Delmon's effort. One thing about him, he goes all-out.
