Charlie Tilson felt like a kid again.

The Wilmette native went back in time when he ran onto the field of Guarantee Rate Field on May 24 for the first time in over a year. He saw the stadium’s scoreboard and other features as he and his White Sox teammates prepared to stretch, each detail bringing back childhood memories of playing baseball.

Tilson had played with that child-like approach to the game before he tore his left hamstring and battled numerous other injuries that kept him away from the game he loves for over a year.
