Honoring our Servicemen and Servicewomen
The White Sox are wearing unique camoflauge uniforms for today’s game with two-tone brown hats in tribute to the men and women across the globe serving our country and protecting our freedoms.
Mark Buehrle, who happens to be starting tonight’s game, told Brooks Boyer, our marketing head, that he really wanted the Sox to wear the camo uniforms similar to what San Diego wears. Brooks made it happen and July 4th is perfect.
Ozzie, ever the funnyman, said he thought some of our guys would use the camo tops to go hunting down on Jim Thome’s spread this fall …
There also will be a flyover tonight.
Prior to the game, the White Sox hosted two special servicemen during batting practice and many more will be in attendance for the game.
