U.S. Cellular Field – Chicago, Il
Chicago White Sox home games were made for little lovers of the game. At the XFINITY Fundamentals area, kidlets are put through the paces, led by Bulls/Sox Academy coaches, who are there to help your petite players perfect pitching and hitting techniques on the wiffle ball diamond. Tiny knuckleballers can also try their hand at base running while mom and dad cheer. Sunday home games mean extra perks for families, like five dollar tickets, and free eats from the kids menu at ChiSox Bar & Grill. Balloon artists, face painters and caricature artists are all part of this big play too, as is a chance to run the bases on U.S. Cellular Field. Play ball!
