Rob Holt, 71, at home in Northbrook with the walking cane he used Sunday during the White Sox, 12-6, win over the Houston Astros at Guaranteed Rate Field. While the Astros were at bat Holt pointed the handle of his cane, as seen here, toward the field to try to keep the players from getting on base. Holt then flipped the cane and pointed the end toward the field while the Sox were at bat to encourage hits. (Armando L. Sanchez / Chicago Tribune)
