The Chicago White Sox will once again represent the Midwest at the 2009 Area Code Baseball Games this August. Their roster has 26 of the Midwest's best players.

The White Sox had three tryouts this summer in Oklahoma, Illinois and Indiana, with more than 300 players trying out for 26 spots.

Six players from last year's roster will make the trip out West for a second time in as many years, led by 2011 standout Dylan Bundy, who was a member of an Owasso Rams team that claimed another Oklahoma State Title in 2009. The Rams were ranked in the top ten of the final ESPN RISE FAB 50 National Rankings.
