Baseball & Steps to Manhood Mentoring

Double Duty Classic

The Chicago White Sox will host the 3rd annual Double Duty Classic June 30, 2010 - an event celebrating the history and tradition of Negro Leagues baseball in Chicago and promoting the next generation of inner-city baseball players. This summer marks the 77th anniversary of the first East-West All-Star Game, which was played at Comiskey Park in Chicago. Elite inner-city high school baseball players from across the country will participate in an All-Star game at U.S. Cellular Field on June 30, 2010, where they will dress in uniforms honoring the Negro Leagues' East-West All-Star Game. An invitation only forum will precede the game and feature a roster of speakers and prominent members of the baseball community.
