An innocent man who wrongly spent 23 years in jail for a murder he didn't commit just got his old job back with the Chicago White Sox.
The Major League franchise has rehired 49-year-old Nevest Coleman as a grounds crew member following his release from prison in November. "The past is the past now...The misery is gone...They didn't have to hire me back. I appreciate the White Sox giving me the opportunity to come back to work," Coleman said Monday.
While not much has changed in the game of baseball, the name of Coleman's workplace has. While the White Sox now play at Guaranteed Rate Field, Coleman told reporters back in November, "I want to sit back for a while, get to know my family, and when the time comes around, go back to Comiskey Park."
