Pierzysnki and Dayan Viciedo are the featured players signing autographs. On Saturday, you can get to know new coaches Mark Parent (bench), Jeff Manto (hitting) and Joe McEwing (third base) when they join Ventura in a seminar titled "Your 2012 White Sox." Frank Thomas, Konerko, Adam Dunn, Crede, Brent Morel, Pierzynski, Alexei Ramirez and Viciedo are the featured players signing autographs. On Sunday, Ventura and his coaching staff are back, and there is another "White Sox Memories" seminar featuring members of the 2005 World Series champions. The first seminar is Saturday. Jake Peavy, Crede, Danks, Gavin Floyd, Morel, Ramirez, Ventura and Viciedo sign autographs on Sunday before SoxFest wraps up at 3 p.m.
