The White Sox will celebrate the inauguration of their No. 1 fan on Tuesday with a private viewing party at U.S. Cellular Field.
Barack Obama, who has been informally invited to throw out the first pitch at The Cell's opening day on April 6, is a South Sider who frequently dons a well-worn Sox cap.
All guests will be required to wear Sox caps to the event, which is not open to the public. Those invited include Sox front office staff and children from schools near the ballpark. A congratulatory sign will be displayed along the Dan Ryan Expressway at 35th Street. And the Sox also will send mascot Southpaw to ride on the Illinois float in the Inauguration Parade.
