They will bring Build-A-Bear stuffed animals as gifts as well, and the White Sox mascot Southpaw will also take part.
The event is made possible by UMPS CARE Charities, a non-profit organization founded by MLB Umpires to help at-risk youth and children coping with serious illness. MLB Umpires have hosted 68 children's hospital events since the program began in 2006.
