It’s April in Chicago, which means optimism is high on both sides of town. Both the Sox and Cubs won their season openers, and there are high hopes for each team this year. Head down to Daley Plaza today for Play Ball Chicago, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. to celebrate all things baseball … quickly … before both teams have a chance to blow it.
The second annual event features White Sox trivia with announcer Ed Farmer, as fans test their knowledge for Sox tickets (11:15 a.m.). You can also play Cubs karaoke with Garry Pressy for a chance to win Cubs tickets. Other celebrities on hand include Sox announcer Bill Melton and Cubs great Billy Williams (and, to a lesser extent, Cubs superfan Ronnie “Woo-Woo” Wickers will surely be in attendance).
It’s a beautiful day, so go ahead and take that long lunch and check out the festivities. We won’t tell.
