Evening at the Ballpark
The Chicago White Sox is a major-league club in the American League Central division. Since established in 1901, the franchise’s storied history has included three World Series Championships, including the 2005 title that brought Chicago its first title in 88 years; with more than 40 members inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York; and iconic eras of baseball like the “Go Go Sox” and “South Side Hitmen.” The organization set the stage for in-game entertainment that has become common in the present sports industry, including the first All-Star Game, the exploding scoreboard, the “first throwback game” and the first use of names on the back of jerseys. The organization uses its strong brand recognition for more than on-field and in-park entertainment. Through its Chicago White Sox Charities, the team has become a pillar of support for the Chicagoland community by providing annual financial, in-kind and emotional support to hundreds of Chicago-based organizations. Contributions in 2018 moved the team’s non-profit arm to more than $32 million in cumulative giving since its inception in 1990. The team is owned by Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf and plays at Guaranteed Rate Field.
