West wore a White Sox jersey, with Saint sporting a miniature custom “West” version over a Chicago Bulls sweatshirt. Watch a video of his pitch above.
Sadly for the Sox, the added Kanye factor didn’t rub off on the team, with the Cubs running out 6-1 winners.
On Twitter, West shared an image of the day as well as one of his late mother Donda throwing a pitch on the same field.

West has been focusing attention on his native Chicago recently. During Chance the Rapper’s Open Mike event, West announced he had moved back to the city. He has also tweeted plans to open a YEEZY office and DONDA schools in the Windy City.
Elsewhere, West bought longtime collaborator CyHi the Prynce a Bentley. Watch the producer get hyped about his gift below.
