CHICAGO — The Chicago White Sox will hold their first ballpark-wide Pride Night in association with the club's "BasebALL: One Game for All" diversity and inclusion initiative at Guaranteed Rate Field on Friday, Aug. 31 vs. Boston.

The White Sox have teamed up with You Can Play project, an organization that works to ensure safety and inclusion for all who participate in sports, to offer specially priced Pride Night tickets at whitesox.com/pride. A portion of proceeds from tickets sold through this link will benefit the You Can Play Project. This ticket offer includes an Outfield Reserved game ticket, a pre-game parade pass, and a pair of rainbow-colored sunglasses.

"We are committed to sharing White Sox baseball with everyone who loves the game and the team," said White Sox Vice President of Community Relations Christine O'Reilly. "While we are celebrating the LGBTQ community on one day in the ballpark, our 'BasebALL: One Game for All' campaign seeks to create a space that is accepting and welcoming for all fans of the game, all season long."

Fans also will have the opportunity to check in through the MLB Ballpark app on Pride Night at Guaranteed Rate Field to receive a White Sox rainbow flag while supplies last. Fans can redeem this check-in offer at the Revolution Brewing #SoxSocial Tap Room.

This is the first time the organization will hold a ballpark-wide celebration for the LGBTQ community. Previous ticket offers supporting the LGBTQ community have included specially priced tickets for Equality Illinois' "Pride Night: OUT at the Sox," which served as a fundraiser for the organization from 2013-2015.

Chicago White Sox Charities ( CWSC ) also supports organizations uplifting the LGBTQ community through its annual grant-giving, including 2018 recipients Center on Halsted and Howard Brown Health Center.

Pride Night is featured in the White Sox "BasebALL: One Game for All" initiative, which celebrates diversity and inclusiveness on the field, in the workplace and in the stands. Additional information about the initiative, as well as activities and events, is available at whitesox.com/inclusion.
