The 2005 World Series Trophy will be on display at the 60th Annual Pitch & Hit Club of Chicago Awards Dinner set for Sunday, January 15, 2005 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. The World Series Trophy recently won by the Chicago White Sox is awarded each year by Major League Baseball to the team winning the World Series. Recent trophy designs consist of 30 flags representing the 30 teams in North America's two top leagues, the National League and the American League. The 2005 trophy was made of brass and pewter, weighs 30 pounds (14 kg) and has an estimated value of $15,000. A small charitable contribution gives you an opportunity to take a picture with the trophy. This will be one of the last photo opportunities for the year.
