To launch individual game tickets going on sale this Friday at 10 a.m., the Chicago White Sox will hold the annual White Sox Ticket Tour, a 12-location tour that includes several Chicagoland Beggars Pizza and Hooters locations as well as The Big Hurt Brewhouse. White Sox front office staff will be joined by various special guests and the Mazda Pride Crew to give away tickets to the April 8 home opener, Sox merchandise and autographed items.
Each location provides fans with a unique experience, including the opportunity to take photos with the 2005 World Series trophy at Beggars Pizza in Blue Island (Kedzie), Illinois. The White Sox Ticket Tour will visit three additional Beggars Pizza and seven Hooters locations throughout the Chicagoland area on Thursday, March 3 between 6-8 p.m.
