The Giants formed in 1910 and quickly became one of the most dominant Negro League teams, winning seven League titles and two Negro League World Series titles. The team disbanded in 1952.
Saturday marks the fourth time (2007, 2008 and 2011) the White Sox have honored the Giants by wearing replica uniforms.
The Tigers will pay tribute to the Detroit Stars by suiting up in their throwback uniforms. In addition to both teams wearing throwback uniforms, the Tigers will welcome several former players to Comerica Park to celebrate Negro Leagues Weekend.
Melvin Duncan, Minnie Forbes, Eugene Scruggs, Bill Hill, Walt Owens, Pedro Sierra, Ron Teasley, Jake Sanders and Johnny Walker will be among the nine Negro League players recognized during a pregame ceremony. Ron Teasley, a Detroit native and former Negro Leagues player, will toss the ceremonial first pitch.
CSN's White Sox coverage on Saturday begins with Pregame Live at 2:30 p.m., followed by first pitch at 3 p.m.
