The White Sox Volunteer Corps visited the J-Def Peace Project program at Solorio Academy High School in Gage Park on April 25, 2017. White Sox great Harold Baines and current stars Miguel Gonzalez and Jacob May helped teens create several glass mosaics that will be on display in the school’s library. Together, the teens and the players cut glass tiles for the mosaics, pieced the tiles into designs and grouted the finished products. Afterward, Chicago White Sox Charities generously donated $50,000 to support After School Matter programs as part of their 2017 grant program through the Chicago White Sox Community Fund, a McCormick Foundation Fund.
