The Chicago White Sox are in the middle of their rebuilding process, but an announcement by the team indicates that fans are thrilled with where things are heading.
According to the team, the annual SoxFest at the Hilton Chicago is now sold out. The event, which begins on Friday, will feature a slew of current and future White Sox players.
Current stars like Avisail Garcia and Jose Abreu will be in attendance for the event, as will Sox legends like Jim Thome and Frank Thomas. Broadcasters Hawk Harrelson and Steve Stone will also attend the event, which kicks off with an Opening Ceremony at 4 p.m. Friday.
The White Sox estimate that over 16,000 autographs will be signed, and that over 4000 photos will be taken during the three-day event.
