UC Product Youkilis Traded to White Sox

Cincinnati, OH (FOX19) - After winning two World Series titles with the Red Sox, Kevin Youkilis has been traded to the Chicago White Sox.  Youk spent 8 and a half seasons in Boston and his departure leaves David Ortiz as the only remaining member of the 2004 championship team still with the Sox.

Youkilis tripled in his last at bat at Fenway Park Sunday and walked off the field to a standing ovation.

Youkilis and his playing time had become a sensitive subject with Boston manager Bobby Valentine.  Rookie Will Middlebrooks has played well at third  base.

Youkilis played at Sycamore High School in Cincinnati, and also at the University of Cincinnati.
