No, we realize that a Major League Ballpark is not a dog park, but the White Sox do their best to turn Guaranteed Rate Field into one every season. No matter your baseball allegiances, taking your dog to a White Sox Dog Days promotional day is a blast.
Tickets are limited so if you want to go you should contact the White Sox as soon as possible to get information about obtaining tickets to the next Dog Days promotional day.
Limited to the outfield mezzanine, the dogs are allowed in any seats but must remain on leash. Sod is imported and allows the dogs a familiar surface upon which to go to the bathroom. The fake fire hydrants are a very nice touch.
Attending Dog Days is a two-tier event that has two tickets: all dogs must have a ticket to enter the game, but only those dogs with a second, more exclusive ticket are allowed to take part in the parade around the infield warning track. The parade occurs before the game and requires participants to arrive extra early so if you hope to take your dog onto the field plan for a long day and be sure to apply for your tickets early.
- 2018 Dog Days:
The White Sox have only announced one Dog Day for the 2018 season – April 23 against Seattle. In past seasons the White Sox have had two dates with one in the latter part of the season so check the team’s promotional schedule page to see about new Dog Day announcements.
- Difficult tickets:
The White Sox do NOT make it easy to get tickets. They require you to fill out a form that proves your Chicago residency and submit it before they mail you the tickets. You cannot buy tickets in person, even if you show up with your rabies vaccination tag in hand. The White Sox insist on mailing the physical tickets to your Chicago address. Even worse, the White Sox have not made the form available online so the only way to get started with the process is to call them at 312-674-1000.
