Family of Loretta Micele Upset White Sox Changed Food Area Name to 'LaRussa's Lounge'

The family of Loretta Micele, a longtime Chicago White Sox stadium worker, expressed frustration the MLB club changed an area at Guaranteed Rate Field named in her honor to "LaRussa's Lounge" for manager Tony La Russa.

"For them to not even notify us, you know, it's a shame," Lou Soto, Micele's great-grandson, told ESPN on Friday.
