White Sox announce additional 2016 promotional dates

Updated schedule features new giveaways including Chris Sale K-Counter Bobblehead

The Chicago White Sox released additional promotional dates for games at U.S. Cellular Field in 2016.

A new highlight among the additional promotions is the Chris Sale K-Counter bobblehead, presented by Wintrust Financial. Last season, the left-handed All-Star set the franchise single-season record with 274 strikeouts. This 2016 season, the first 20,000 fans to the game on Saturday, May 7 against Minnesota will be able to track his Ks over the remainder of the season with the unique strikeout counter on the base of the bobblehead.

In addition to the K-Counter, the most up-to-date promotional schedule features special giveaways for every guest at the ballpark:

  • White Sox Hawaiian Shirt: The first 20,000 fans can get into the swing of summer when they receive a White Sox-themed Hawaiian Shirt. (Saturday, June 11 vs. Kansas City)
  • White Sox American Girl Doll-Sized T-Shirt presented by American Girl Doll: The first 5,000 girls, ages 12 and under, will receive a White Sox T-shirt sized to fit an American Girl Doll. (Sunday, June 26 vs. Toronto)

The announcement adds to the list of fan-favorites, including the popular Weather Day, presented by WGN, on Wednesday, May 25 against Cleveland. WGN Chief Meteorologist Tom Skilling is scheduled to return to U.S. Cellular Field to shed some light on questions about severe weather.

Fan-favorite Family Sundays also returns to U.S. Cellular Field, offering tickets as low as $5 in the Upper Level and $15 in the Lower Level with $10 parking. Entertainment includes children's running the bases postgame (weather permitting), face painters, balloonists, a caricature artist and magnet art. Family Sundays cover all 13 Sunday home games during the 2016 season.
