Kanye West's Latest White Sox Game Pitch Was Deeper Than Fans Knew
publish date: 2018-09-24
Chicago, IL – Kanye West and his two-year-old son Saint were in Ye's hometown of Chicago to throw out the first pitch before the White Soxs 6-1 loss to the Cubs on Sunday (September 23) in the latest Crosstown Classic.

For the city of Chicago, having its biggest Hip Hop export kick off a game that served as both the final time that the Sox and the Cubs were set to match up in 2018 — in their home city — as well the final goodbye for 33-year Sox broadcast announcer Ken 'Hawk' Harrelson was a big deal.
For Ye, the moment was even more sentimental. 'Same field,' he captioned an Instagram photo of him and his late mother on the pitcher's mound over a decade earlier.
