CHICAGO - The Chicago White Sox have announced an exclusive Jose Abreu bobblehead as the weekend package premium item for SoxFest 2015, presented by Miller Lite, Pepsi, Comcast SportsNet, Beggars Pizza and WGN-TV. SoxFest 2015 will be held at the Hilton Chicago on Friday, January 23, Saturday, January 24, and Sunday, January 25, 2015.
Abreu has recently been named American League Rookie of the Year by Sporting News. The White Sox first baseman became the first rookie in major-league history to rank among the Top 5 in his league in each Triple Crown category, while setting a franchise rookie record with 36 home runs. To receive the exclusive SoxFest 2015 Jose Abreu bobblehead, fans can purchase weekend packages at whitesox.com/SoxFest. The weekend package includes a two-night stay at the Hilton Chicago, up to four SoxFest 2015 weekend passes and special Friday night access.
The White Sox recently announced a list of players scheduled to appear at SoxFest, which includes 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 - including members of the 2005 World Championship team - 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.
