CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Paul Konerko figures there will be emotional moments as he winds through his final season with the Chicago White Sox.

Just don't expect him to get all misty eyed for his final spring training.

The six-time All-Star made that clear Thursday as the White Sox conducted their first full squad workout, the start of a season-long victory lap for a slugger who ranks among the club's all-time leaders in home runs and RBIs.

Konerko says there will "probably be some moments where you're a little bit sad" this year, but spring training won't be one of them. He says most players "would rather just snap their fingers and be ready."

He's back for his 16th season in Chicago and 18th in the majors, hoping to finish on a positive note.
