After a successful event this past Tuesday in Kansas City, we hope our second event will be even better. This event will have the same structure as the last one: first there will be an educational presentation entitled “Two Tales of Two Teams,” secondly there will be a pregame tailgate, and finally the night will end with tickets to the game.

The presentation will be given by Dr. Steven A. Riess, Professor Emeritus Northeastern Illinois and author of the book Touching Base. His book is about the relationship between society and baseball and how baseball is a microcosm of society. Riess’ presentation will take an in-depth look at the establishments of cross-city rivals, Cubs and White Sox, and the effect each organization had on its respective community.

The tailgate will be catered by Uncle John’s BBQ., famous for its hot links and rib tips. What better way to warm up for the baseball game than with delicious barbecue, tailgating games, and good company?

The game itself will be the White Sox vs the Baltimore Orioles. Our General Manager, Toby, is a huge O’s fan, so we will all be conflicted when we root for the hometown White Sox. If you are looking for us, just look for the Orioles cap – he will probably be the only O’s fan there. All tickets will be provided  to the game, so you do not have to worry about getting your own.

All of this is yours for a donation of $25 or more. Money raised will benefit our partner organization here in Chicago, Lost Boyz Inc.
