Dunn Gets Early Start on White Sox Spring Training
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Adam Dunn and his 4-year-old son, Brady, walked into the Chicago White Sox clubhouse Friday afternoon, four days early.

Brady ran up to jersey No. 44, perplexed, and asked his dad why his jersey was so small.

"Little guy's got it now," Dunn explained, talking about Jake Peavy, setting his things down at the adjacent locker, where a more adequately sized No. 32 jersey was hanging.

Though he's indifferent about which number he wears, this will only be the second season in his career that Dunn will wear No. 32 instead of 44. He also wore it in 2008 with Arizona.

The "Big Donkey" was the White Sox's big catch from the free agent pond this offseason and is poised to make a huge splash in the AL Central.
