The White Sox welcome back a cadre of special alumni on July 14 at 1:10 p.m. for the 1993 pennant-winning team. The first 20,000 fans will receive a replica of the A.L. West Division pennant courtesy of NBC Sports Chicago. But if you go for the pennant, make sure you stay for the alumni presence.
The alumni presence will be strong and after a ceremony to honor the team at the beginning of the game, alumni will be available for autographs around the ballpark.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of A.L. West Division champs the Sox invite back 22 players from that team. Ozzie Guillen, Bo Jackson, Tim Raines and Frank Thomas headline the alumni contingent. Jack “Black Jack” McDowell rounds out a prodigious roster of venerable White Sox players that will be on hand to take in a ballgame.
Other players attending include pitchers Wilson Alvarez, Jason bere, Chuck Cary, Brian Drahman, Barry Jones and Donn Pall; catcher Matt Merullo; infielder Craig Grebeck; outfielders Mike Huff, Lance Johnson, Warren Newson and DanPasqua; and 1993 manager Gene Lamont accompanied by other members of the coaching staff, Terry Bevington, Walt, Hriniak, Doug Mansolino and Dewey Robinson. Alumni will be available on Saturday and Sunday for autographs.
The Kansas City Royals will be in town that weekend and there is a fireworks display scheduled for Friday evening.
