If you weren’t already excited for Spring & the beginning of baseball season, you’re insane.
For the rest of us, the White Sox announced today that the team will be commemorating the 10th anniversary of the 2005 World Series win with special promotions all Summer long.
2015 White Sox promotions celebrating the 2005 win over the Astros are in addition to the previously-announced “Reunion Weekend”, July 17-19 vs. KC. Additional World Series promos are as follows:
- Bobby Jenks World Series Moment Bobblehead, presented by Comcast SportsNet: The first 20,000 fans will receive a bobblehead portraying Bobby Jenks’ celebratory moment on the mound after closing Game 4 of the 2005 World Series. (Saturday, July 4 vs. Baltimore Orioles)
- 2005 World Championship Replica Ring, presented by Miller Lite: The first 20,000 adults (ages 21 and over) will receive a replica 2005 World Series Championship ring. (Saturday, July 18 vs. Kansas City Royals)

The team is also presenting an additional fireworks night on Friday, July 17th.
Personally, I needed no further reason to be damn-near giddy about the 2015 season: with all of the moves Rick Hahn has made this offseason, and coming off of Jose Abreu’s outstanding rookie year (not to mention, the end of winter….), I’ve got better feelings about the 2015 White Sox than I’ve had about any Southside club for some time.
Check out the complete 2015 White Sox schedule and mark these WS promos in your calendar. Single-game tickets go on sale this Friday.
