The Chicago White Sox will celebrate Mark Buehrle's historic July 23 perfect game and his Major League Baseball (MLB) record-setting streak of 45 consecutive batters retired during the upcoming three-game series vs. the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (August 4-6) at U.S. Cellular Field.

The "Buehrle Appreciation Series" will feature a special ceremony prior to the game on Tuesday, August 4. All fans will have the opportunity to purchase specially priced tickets for all three games of the series. In honor of the nine perfect innings thrown by the All-Star lefty during his perfect game, Upper Reserved seats will be available for $9 (originally priced at $23), while Lower Reserved and Bleacher seats will be available for $27 (originally priced $38 and $37, respectively) for the 27 consecutive Tampa Bay batters retired during the memorable game.

All three games of the White Sox series vs. the Angels will feature limited-edition 'Perfect Game' and 'MLB Record-Setting' giveaways for all fans in attendance (limited qualities, while supplies last). All fans attending Tuesday's game will receive a limited-edition Mark Buehrle Perfect Game Placard, presented by Apple Vacations. Details on the limited-edition Mark Buehrle giveaways, along with information on the previously scheduled promotional activities, will be announced soon.

Tickets to the "Buehrle Appreciation Series" will be available online at whitesox.com, via phone at 866-SOX-GAME and at the U.S. Cellular Field ticket office starting tomorrow at 9 a.m. CT. The Tuesday and Wednesday games begin at 7:11 p.m., while Thursday's game starts at 1:05 p.m.
