Favorite Things Basket Auction presented by White Sox Wives


On Saturday, August 29th the White Sox Wives will host a Favorite Things Basket Auction to benefit Chicago White Sox Charities. The wives have put together an extensive collection of their husbands favorite things in each basket to represent their interests outside of baseball - don't worry; they didn't forget about autographed baseball items as well! In addition to White Sox players and coaches a few specialty themed baskets will also be available for bidding including a 2005 World Series basket, Jerry Reinsdorf's Favorite Things basket and Hawk Harrelson and Steve Stone Favorite Things basket.

Fans will be able to call the White Sox wives to place their bids starting on Saturday at 5 p.m. by calling 312-674-5683. Bidding will end at 8 p.m. CT on Saturday.
