unnamed-1The Chicago White Sox have always done a great job of creating family-friendly events. Whether you’re a life-long baseball fan or a just want to spend some time experiencing a summer tradition, here are some of my favorite family events at U. S. Cellular Field.

Family Sundays
Everyone wants to have fun and save money. Family Sundays offer $10 parking, $5 upper level tickets and $15 lower level tickets. The parking discount alone makes this a budget-friendly event, but the ticket discount makes it hard to stay away from the ballpark on Family Sundays. There are family-friendly events throughout the concourse and kids have an opportunity to run the bases after the game. Every kid I know wants to run the bases on a professional baseball field. This is a holiday card photo waiting to happen. The Chicago White Sox vs. Chicago Cubs game is not part of the Family Sundays calendar.

Father Daughter Day
Saturday, June 20, The Private Bank sponsors Father Daughter Day. The first 20,000 fans will receive a souvenir White Sox cap. This is a fun way for Dads and their daughters to spend a day celebrating their special bond at the ball field.

Fireworks Fridays
Every Friday, the Chicago White Sox host a spectacular fireworks show after the game. Fireworks are such a wonderful summer-time tradition. There was a time when you’d see fireworks a lot at festivals, holidays, etc. So many places have eliminated fireworks shows due to budget cuts. The White Sox continue to put on a swoon-worthy show just because it’s Friday.

American Girl Doll T-Shirt Day
Sunday, August 2 is a day your young daughter will want to mark on her summer calendar. The first 5,000 girls attending the game will receive a Chicago White Sox t-shirt for her American Girl doll. The girls will also receive an applique she can bring to the American Girl store on Michigan Avenue to have a matching t-shirt made.

First Game Certificate
No matter when your family attends a Chicago White Sox game, the Guest Relations Booth behind home plate has a certificate waiting for everyone attending their first Chicago White Sox game. It’s a free, fun way to remember the first visit to the ballpark.
