The Chicago White Sox will wear 1983 throwback uniforms during all Sunday home games in 2013. The uniforms will feature the iconic red, navy blue and primary white pullover jersey with the block "S-O-X" across the chest, and a vintage patch on the left sleeve, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the All-Star Game, which was played at Old Comiskey Park. The throwback uniforms also will include the still popular tri-color Sox cap. The White Sox will wear the tribute uniforms on 13 Sundays this season, starting with April 7 vs. Seattle.
I bought 4 nose bleeds for that first Sunday and a parking pass for $50. Great deal, thanks to the family friendly Sunday tickets.
"Family Sundays," also a new White Sox fan experience in 2013, will feature seats in Bleacher, Outfield Reserved, Lower Corner and Premium Upper Box sections for $15, Upper Box and Upper Reserved Seats will be available for $10, and Upper Corner tickets will be priced at only $5. Additionally, parking at U.S. Cellular Field parking lots on Sundays will be available for $10. Ticket prices are for fans of all ages.
The racing mascots are back again.
Also during Sunday home games in 2013, the White Sox will commemorate the 1983 team with a special retro race during the seventh inning of each game, similar to last season’s tribute to the 1972 team. This season’s "Winning Ugly" retro race, which will be presented by Aldi, will include "Racing Harold" (Baines), "Racing Pudge" (Fisk) and "Racing Kitty" (Kittle) retro racers.
I'd like to see an appearance by the 1972 guys in a retro race free for all.
Here's a close up of Harold Baines and Addison Reed showing off the new old threads:
I love these unis. I was 8 years old when they took the American League West by storm wearing those beautiful fan made monstrosities. Oddly enough, I was looking on whitesox.com and at the Chicago Sports Depot website for these very jerseys this afternoon. Sadly, they aren't for sale there just yet. Although I did find one on ebay.
If you spend $100 at the Chicago Sports Depot this weekend you get this sweet White Sox tapestry throw, and I want one.
