Dana Evans, Alec Thomas and Robin Ventura starred in “Random Hawlights”.


CHICAGO – In the first weekend of May, several memorable performances were held for athletes representing local interests in the area, and three of them were shown in the “Random Crib” this week on WGN News Now.

On Friday, Chicago Sky opened the 2022 season against the Los Angeles Sparks, and the biggest star for the team was native Gary, who started his first career WNBA game. Despite losing in overtime, Dana Evans started her second season in the WNBA with the highest of 24 career points along with five assists and four interceptions.

Chicago native Alec Thomas, a former Mount Carmel high school star, played his first game in the Major League Baseball on Sunday after receiving a call from the Diamondbacks. He was in Arizona’s starting lineup and received a double for his first MLB strike, helping Arizona win at home over the Rockies 4-0.

Robin Ventura may have left Oklahoma University in the 1980s, but he took care to finish one thing in his career at school: a degree. Back in 2020, the former White Sox all-star manager and manager graduated Saturday with a team welcoming the achievement on Twitter.

Larry Hawley showed all three in his “Random Crib” this week on WGN News Now, and you can see them in the video above.
