White Sox rookie Jacob May confident in bright future

Jacob May carefully cleaned the lenses of his sunglasses Friday afternoon.

The White Sox — and May, of course — hope his future is bright enough to merit shades.

The rookie outfielder's major-league career was five days and two games old going into Friday's contest against the Twins at Guaranteed Rate Field.

What stood before him as he stood before his locker — jerseys with his name on them — wasn't lost on the 25-year-old who was born in Williamsport, Pa., the birthplace of Little League Baseball.

This is the major leagues, where his great-uncle, Carlos May, played for the White Sox.
