Default Family Sunday Autographs

Hello
I hope I am posting this in the right place.

Does anyone know if the White Sox provide autograph information for the kids prior to the Sunday games?
Like what players will be signing autographs and where? Or is it something you just have to get to the stadium and find out by walking around?

Thanks.
That is what I thought.
In years past I never saw or heard anything but people have told me there were "maps" or something that told you which players were where.

Yes once in a while a map does float around or they posted it on the jumbotron but the first one this year they didn't tell anybody who was at which station.

Jerry Dybzinski was never a star, unless maybe in High School. At least Squires was a Gold Glove caliber 1st Baseman.

He was a star base runner when it counted.

The absurdity of having bit players sign autographs for kids born years after they retired is so awesome.

I look forward to getting my kid David Aardsma's autograph in 20 years.

Got the Dybber to sign a bat outisde the park before today's game. He and his wife couldn't have been nicer. I was thrilled to have the bat signed. I've had it for at least 25 years and never thought I'd have the chance to have it autographed. I'm now a Julio Cruz bat away from completing the 1983 lineup.

Both guys were really nice to meet, nice to see the Sox bring back some former players to interact with the fans at games. I hope they continue to do so

Guest Services had a listing of what players would be at each sections. Among the autographs we got were: The 4 announcers, Jake Peavy, Adam Dunn, Daryl Boston, Tyler Greene, and Jordan Danks. Everyone was great except Dunn. He had his hoodie pulled up and was just going through the motions, not really interacting with the kids. His "handlers" didn't allow individual pictures to be taken, you had to take them as he was signing, and he didn't look at the camera. Steve Stone was really great with the kids, going out of his way to ask them questions. All in all, a really great experience, that my 7 year old loves doing.

Yes nice to see that they let the 83 guys sign for everyone in at their own table and they finally had sheets inside but most people had no clue where they were.

Dybzynski's would be cool to have, even if just for the notoriety he earned in Game 4. Its not like people have never heard of him.

I've never collected autographs but if Salome Barojas was there I'd seek him out since I have his jersey. Probably would be the ego boost of the year for him.

When did they do this?

I think it is a great thing to make the kid's day. Very cool.
