Here's part two of George Castle's interview with Kerry Wood, presented here exclusively in cooperation with Rant Sports. Kerry talks about how he was able to throw 98 MPH when young, about his 20K game, and other topics.

Site note for later today: the Cubs/White Sox game starts an hour later than usual, at 4:05 p.m. CDT. Thus, the game preview will post at 2 p.m. CDT, an hour later than usual.

Note: there's a short ad that plays before the interview begins.
