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

Fisher House is a Godsend. So many of us want to be with our family members but can’t always afford it with the cost of travel, lodging and food. Thanks to Fisher House we can!


What a blessing! The Fisher House has relieved me of so much stress. Don’t know what I would have done.


This is such a great opportunity for families of veterans affected by war and illness. It warms my heart to see the government, community, families and those who serve out nation working together for the greater good.


The place is more than just a place to sleep. It’s just like your second home.


My grandmother and I stayed at the Fisher House to keep my father company during his long treatment/recovery… If not for this home, my father would have been a sad and lonely man.


…The Fisher House provides peace of mind for the patient as well as their family…the manager and staff are a true blessing…
