Hit a home run by surprising someone special in your life with a personalized Scoreboard Message at a White Sox home game!
Scoreboard Messages are displayed on the right-field video board and can be purchased online for $65 (or $100 with an on-screen photo). You may also order a digital photo of your message for an additional $15. All proceeds benefit Chicago White Sox Charities.
There are a limited number of messages available each game. Space is limited, so order your scoreboard message today.
Scoreboard message requests must be submitted no later than two (2) business days for messages without on-screen photos and three (3) business days for messages with an on-screen photo prior to the date of the game pending availability.
Messages displayed with On-Screen Photos
If you select the "Order a Scoreboard Message displayed with On-Screen Photo" option, you must email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your game date and order number with your photo. Photos should be submitted in JPEG format with a size of or near 624x924 pixels. Pictures should be in portrait orientation, not landscape. Messages displayed with the photo are limited to 75 characters or less.
If you do not see the game listed, you have missed the deadline to order online. Orders will be processed in the order in which they are received and will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. You will receive an e-mail confirmation shortly after the close of the submission period to confirm your order.
The White Sox reserve the right to approve and edit any message if necessary. Messages that are obscene, offensive, include foul language or refer negatively to any other Major League Baseball organization will not be accepted. They also cannot include the name of any MLB player. The message cannot be used for commercial purposes; however, you may welcome a group or company who is attending the game. Messages can be up to 75 characters or less including spaces and punctuation.
Advance Message Timing
Scoreboard messages received in advance will be displayed during the top and bottom of the third inning. This is the only time frame for advance messages to run during the game.
For scoreboard message requests that are not submitted by the online ordering deadline, day-of-game messages can be ordered during the game you are attending for $80. Day-of-game messages must be submitted by the end of the third inning at the Guest Relations booths located on the main and upper concourses behind home plate. Photos cannot be added to day-of-game orders.
Get a Commemorative Photo of Your Message!
You may order a digital print of your message for an additional $15. Digital prints will be emailed approximately two weeks after the game date.
*Fans should note that this will be a reprint of the message, not a live photo of the message on the scoreboard.
If you have any questions, please call 312-674-5504 or e-mail email@example.com.
