It’s summertime in the Windy City of Chicago, Illinois and the fans of the White Sox have some options for fans to “cool off” when the temperatures become unbareable as it has most of the season.

There is the Chicagoland Plumbing Council Shower.

Located on the stadium’s main level near Section 161, the shower was originally placed in the outfield stands at Old Comiskey Park. In 1991, it was moved to the modern ballpark.

There are also two “rain rooms” where fans can get a mist to cool them off. One is located in Section 162 and the other in Section 524.

Opened in 1991, U.S. Cellular Field was built for a cost of $167 million and it seats 40,615 fans.

The Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame & Museum’s 2012 Big Red Machine bobblehead series, presented by Dinsmore & Shohl LLP, continues in May with the release of the George Foster bobblehead. It’s the second in the six bobblehead series collection.

The George Foster bobbleheads are free with full-price paid admission to the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in May while supplies last.

There is a strict policy limit of one bobblehead per ticket purchaser per day and the limited number of bobbleheads available for public distribution will go very quickly.

George Foster was one of the most feared sluggers of his era, belting a club-record 52 home runs in his 1977 Most Valuable Player season and pacing the National League in RBI each season from 1976-1978. Inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 2003, Foster ranks fifth on the franchise’s all-time home run list.

The 63-year-old Foster, a native of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, played in the majors from 1969-1986 with San Francisco, the Reds, the Mets and the White Sox.

His career totals included a .274 batting average, with 348 home runs and 1,239 RBI’s.

The best way to ensure a bobblehead is through the purchase of a museum membership. For a membership, please visit the membership page on redsmuseum.org or call (513) 765-7923.
