Social media is taking over the sports world, and the White Sox and Giants are proof.

The two MLB squads are teaming up in a groundbreaking contest to offer their respective fanbases a chance to win an all-expenses paid trip to the opposing city to catch a summer matchup between the teams.

Fans can enter to become their team's #SocialSeries correspondent by posting an Instagram or Twitter message that includes the #SocialSeries hashtag and the team handles - @WhiteSox, @SFGiants - explaining why they should be their team's social correspondent.

The two fans that win for each team will be allowed to bring a guest and take part in several exclusive activities like touring the ballpark and the city.

The Giants will hold their #SocialSeries contest from May 12 through May 31 for the June 17-18 series on the South Side of Chicago. The White Sox portion of the contest starts July 1 and ends July 20 for the August 12-13 series in San Francisco.

“As the first two MLB teams with public social media spaces, we thought the series is a great way to showcase the #SoxSocial Lounge and @Cafe, digitally connect our fan bases and offer the correspondents a unique, behind-the-scenes social experience,” said Nicole Saunches, Chicago White Sox director of mass communications.
