National Anthem by White Sox anthemist Gerald Chaney

Ceremonial first pitch by Fenger Academy High School principal Liz Dozier

The White Sox are planning a special pre-game tribute in honor of the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing tragedy.

Jackie Robinson Day is commemorated by the White Sox and Major League Baseball to honor the man who broke baseball's color barrier on April 15, 1947. Every player will wear No. 42 jerseys during Tuesday's game. All 30 clubs have autographed No. 42 jerseys for auction at mlb.com/42jersey, with proceeds benefitting the Jackie Robinson Foundation. Members of the White Sox Amateur City Elite Program will take the field in No. 42 jerseys to welcome the White Sox starting lineup at their positions.

In honor of Jackie Robinson Day, Liz Dozier, the principal of Fenger Academy High School, will throw out a ceremonial first pitch. She is recognized as a leader and catalyst for change in the Chicagoland community and has been featured on CNN's documentary series "Chicagoland."

"K Zone For Sale"

Giveaway: White Sox Calendar (all fans)

National Anthem by the Crystal Lake South High School A Cappella Choir

Ceremonial first pitch by Secretary of State Jesse White

"K Zone For Sale" is a new ballpark promotion in Section 154. When White Sox ace Chris Sale starts at home, fans with tickets in Section 154 will receive a free K Zone t-shirt and K card at the #SoxSocial Lounge. "K Zone For Sale" tickets are $20 for most games, with the exception of Family Sundays, when the tickets are $15 (pricing is also different in section 154 for the Crosstown Cup games against the Chicago Cubs).

The Crystal Lake South High School A Cappella Choir will sing the National Anthem.

Jesse White, the Illinois Secretary of State, will throw out a ceremonial first pitch in recognition of April as national "donate life month." He will be throwing the pitch in honor of organ and tissue donor Vikki Tulcus, who died last year waiting for a kidney. She donated her corneas so two others could receive the gift of sight. In Illinois, more than five million people have signed up for the registry but about 300 people die waiting for the gift of life every year. Illinois residents can sign up to become an organ and tissue donor at lifegoeson.com.
