It promises to be a night of fun – networking, socializing and the thrill and excitement of major league baseball under the stars – when the White Sox welcome “The Divine Nine,” the Black Greek-letter organizations (fraternities and sororities), to U.S. Cellular Field for the first-ever African American Greek Night on Friday.This is interesting to note. I've discussed a little about these organizations overtime. Even noted anniversaries that they've had, especially the Alphas, AKAs, or the Deltas.
Opening pitch: 7:11 p.m. The Divine Nine is made up of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, founded in 1906 at Cornell U.; Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, founded in 1908 at Howard U.; Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, founded in 1911 at Indiana U.; Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, founded in 1911 at Howard U.; Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, founded in 1913 at Howard U.; Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, founded in 1914 at Howard U.; Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, founded in 1920 at Howard U.; Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, founded in 1922 at Butler U.; and Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, founded in 1963 at Morgan State U.
Specially priced tickets ($45, bleachers; $35.50, upper reserved) are offered to The Divine Nine members to see the Sox take on the Cleveland Indians. Prior to the game, there’ll be a pre-game party at Gate 1 from 5:30 p.m.–7 p.m. Each ticket includes unlimited drinks (beer, soda, water), a hot dog and a bag of chips–during the pre-game only! Advance sales only! Email Rozzie McHenry at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and to place your order. Play ball!
