ABOUT THE EVENT AND LARRY A POGOFSKY

For the first time ever, Chicago baseball legends from the White Sox and Cubs will come together for Larry A. Pogofsky Chicago All-Star Softball Challenge. Larry A. Pogofsky, one of the original White Sox investors, was a die-hard baseball fan who loved and respected every player that had the privilege to put on a major league uniform. The Pogofsky family has partnered with CBS Chicago and 670 The Score to honor his legacy through his love for the sport. 



The Inaugural Larry A. Pogofsky Chicago All-Star Softball Challenge will be held on Saturday September 7th, 2013 at the Schaumburg Boomers Stadium in the northwest suburbs at 4:00pm. Join us as we raise money for charity while witnessing the North Side / South Side rivalry as it has never been seen before.
