White Sox announce special guests scheduled to appear at Homecoming Weekend

Fans are invited to welcome back their favorite former White Sox players from the popular 1990s era to Guaranteed Rate Field on May 26-28 with Homecoming Weekend, presented by the Village of Bedford Park. 
 
White Sox alums who helped contribute memorable moments to White Sox baseball are scheduled to join the festivities throughout the series vs. Detroit, including relief pitcher Keith Foulke (1997-2002), who ranks fourth on the White Sox all-time saves list and relief appearances; Bob Howry (1998-2002), who ranks third on the White Sox all-time holds list; 2000 American League (AL) All-Star pitcher James Baldwin (1995-2001); and pitcher Mike Sirotka (1995-2000), who ranked among AL left-handers in wins (4th, 40), ERA (5th, 4.30) and strikeouts (7th, 381) from 1998-2000. Players will throw ceremonial first pitches and sign autographs throughout the weekend.
 
The Homecoming Weekend celebration invites fans to join in the fun with the following promotions and special giveaway:

  • Fireworks, presented by Village of Bedford Park (Friday, May 26)
  • White Sox Photo Book giveaway, presented by CSN: The first 20,000 fans, will receive this commemorative White Sox photo book featuring great moments from the popular 1990s White Sox baseball era. (Saturday, May 27)
  • Coca-Cola Family Sunday (Sunday, May 28) 

Fan-favorite Coca-Cola Family Sundays offer tickets as low as $5 in the Upper Level and $15 in the Lower Level with $10 parking. Entertainment includes children's running the bases postgame (weather permitting), face painters, balloon artists, a caricature artist and magnet art.
 
Homecoming Weekend also features a single-admission doubleheader on Friday, May 26, beginning at 4:10 p.m. CT, a postponed game due to rain on April 5. The originally scheduled contest will begin at 7:10 p.m. CT, or 30 minutes following the conclusion of the opener, but no sooner than the scheduled start time. On May 26 for the doubleheader, gates and parking lots will open at 3:10 p.m.
 
Tickets for the April 5 postponed game are a gift certificate, and fans should exchange those game tickets and parking coupons for tickets of equal or lesser value to any future regular-season White Sox home game. All exchanges must be done at the Guaranteed Rate Field box office during regular business hours or by mail. Fans with tickets for the April 5 game cannot use those tickets for entry on May 26. Fans with tickets for the 7:10 p.m. game on May 26 may attend both games of the doubleheader.
