White Sox to celebrate Jim Thome Day

Honoring 2018 Hall of Famer August 11

Includes Thome Bobbleheads for 1st 20,000 fans;

Pregame Ceremony at 6:10 P.M.

The White Sox will honor Hall of Fame slugger Jim Thome with a special celebration on Aug. 11 when the Cleveland Indians come to town. It’ll be a chance for fans at Guaranteed Rate Field to show love for the former first baseman and designated hitter after he entered the Baseball Hall of Fame as part of the 2018 induction class. The August 11 game with Cleveland is particularly appropriate because Thome spent most of his MLB career with the White Sox and Cleveland Indians.

Military Families Express Heartfelt Appreciation

I’m overwhelmed by the impeccable service…this has been one of the most beautiful experiences under the circumstances for my Dad’s medical problems…grateful doesn’t cover how I feel and blessed.

 

This our first time at the Fisher House—how amazing it is! ...thank you for providing comfort when we’re feeling most uncertain of what our future holds…after long days at the hospital it’s so nice to find fellowship upon return “home.”

 

Back again..so nice to know the Fisher House and staff are here for us. Especially when there is so much unknown in the future of my husband’s health…you provide for us at a time when we are dealing with issues that sometimes overwhelm us.

 

The staff didn’t act like staff. They treated us like family. I thought it would be like living in barracks. Wow, was I wrong! I’m grateful to Fisher House..found a new charity that is near and dear to my heart.

 

This stay helped so much! God blessed me by allowing us to stay in the Fisher House which gives peace in this timed of need.

 

After being here 32 days, we are going home…Fisher House is a lifesaver..what a beautiful place! Thankful for everyone who touched our lives.
