White Sox Manager to Appear in 'Christmas Carol'
CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura is set to take the stage during a performance of ''A Christmas Carol'' at Chicago's Goodman Theatre.

The White Sox hired Ventura in October to replace Ozzie Guillen. Ventura will appear in the show on Wednesday evening with 9-year-old Emily Beazley of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The pair will wear costumes specially made for them. They will appear in select scenes throughout the production.

Ventura says he's honored to participate.
