CHICAGO -- In the 7th round of the Major League Baseball draft last month, the White Sox took one of their own.

Blake Hickman, who played for the White Sox ACE (Amateur City Elite) program and graduated from Simeon before playing at the University of Iowa, was lucky enough to be taken by his home town team.

Sports Feed co-host Josh Frydman caught up with Hickman at Wednesday's Double Duty Classic event at U.S. Cellular.
