Homewood-Flossmoor White Sox fans this weekend can celebrate one of the great achievements in Chicago sports history – the team’s 2005 World Series championship.

Sunday’s Homewood-Flossmoor Family Day is part of the 2005 World Series Weekend. The game begins at 1:10 p.m. at U.S. Cellular Field. The H-F Summer Choir will perform the national anthem prior to the first pitch.

Members of the White Sox championship team will be on hand for the three-game series against the Kansas City Royals.

Ozzie Guillen, the 2005 manager, will be at Sunday’s game along with 15 Sox players from that year’s team. They are – and this is in alphabetical order – Brian Anderson, Geoff Blum, Joe Crede, Jermaine Daye, Carl Everett, Jon Garland, Willie Harris, Dustin Hermanson, Orlando Hernandez, Paul Konerko, Scott Podsednik, Cliff Politte, Aaron Rowand, Frank Thomas and Chris Widger. Coaches from the 2005 team at the game will include Harold Baines, Don Cooper, Art Kusnyer, Man-Soo Lee and Greg Walker.

The first 10,000 fans at Sunday’s game will receive a tailgate flag commemorating the 2005 team.
