White Sox Players Scheduled to Appear at Annual Fan Event; Newly Priced Hotel Packages, Kids Pricing and Weekend Passes for SoxFest 2015 Available Exclusively on White Sox Website

The Chicago White Sox have announced an initial list of current players scheduled to appear at the Hilton Chicago for SoxFest 2015, presented by Miller Lite, Pepsi, Comcast SportsNet and WGN-TV.

SoxFest 2015 offers fans the opportunity to meet their favorite current White Sox players and members of the 2005 World Series Championship team. White Sox players scheduled to appear include Jose Abreu, Adam Eaton, Tyler Flowers, Avisail Garcia, Conor Gillaspie, Jake Petricka, Jose Quintana and Alexei Ramirez as well as pitching coach Don Cooper, hitting coach Todd Steverson and manager Robin Ventura. Additional current and former White Sox players who also will attend the event held on Friday, January 23, Saturday, January 24 and Sunday, January 25, 2015, will be announced at a later date.

This is the first year that the Hilton Chicago will host SoxFest, which is in its 23rd year. Fans can attend special autograph, photo and question-and-answer sessions, as well as the SoxFest Garage Sale. The weekend also will include special interactive activities at the new venue for White Sox fans of all ages.

The rate for SoxFest 2015 ranges from $389 to $528 for a two-night stay at the Hilton Chicago and up to four SoxFest weekend passes. Weekend passes for adults have been reduced over 45 percent to $40, while the White Sox offer a new $20 pass for kids (4-13 years of age) - resulting in over $100 savings for a family of four from last year's weekend passes. Weekend passes - including special Friday night access and a limited-edition SoxFest premium item - only are available for purchase by fans who book the two-night stay through whitesox.com/SoxFest.

To purchase hotel packages or obtain more information, fans should visit whitesox.com/SoxFest or contact the SoxFest hotline at (312) 609-1915.
