Pro vs. G.I. Joe

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

To kick off White Sox Charities Week, White Sox Players A.J. Pierzynski, Chris Sale and Matt Thornton participated in Pro vs. G.I Joe at U.S. Cellular Field.

Pro vs. G.I. Joe brings together local wounded veterans and active military members currently deployed overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The competition takes place via an online gaming system that allows the players and troops to talk to each other while they compete.

After they finished playing, the players spent time interacting with the troops, signing autographs and listening to stories about the soldier’s military experiences.
