In arguably the worst sports lull of the year, White Sox fans could probably use a little pick-me-up. If their new spring training hats weren’t enough, a few lucky fans got a special gift Thursday.
The White Sox ticket office spent much of the day calling fans in hopes of selling season tickets. However, when they needed a break, a few familiar voices took over.
In addition to the long-time White Sox broadcaster, the team got outfielder Avisail Garcia and Harold Baines to make a few calls.
In addition to making the day of a few fans on the phone, the White Sox made a special trip to the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital. Robin Ventura, John Danks and even the team mascot Southpaw visited young fans.
The White Sox will send pitchers and catchers to Arizona on February 19, four days before the rest of the team joins them.
