Chicago White Sox Stitch & Pitch Night

I received the following email about this event so I thought I’d share it with y’all in case anyone would like to go. [size=2]Please note that I am in no way endorsing the White Sox, my DH is a die hard Yankees fan so I need to document this! [/size] It sounds like fun . . .

That is such a great idea! I wish the Reds would do that. Although, I didn’t really need an excuse to bring my knitting last time (they are pretty bad this year :frowning: )

All the women did was set up an email campaign to the team’s main events person to have it made into a formal night. I think you could do this in any city with any team if you could just get enough people together to make it worthwhile to them.

This is from the Stitch-n-Bitch group in Chicago so it’s quite a large group. They got the idea from the Seattle Mariner’s night that another group asked for out there.
