Chicago White Sox: The One Summer Night Without Baseball
The Chicago White Sox and the rest of Major League Baseball are off tonight, but there are things to do related to baseball and the White Sox.
Today is in all likelihood going to be the only day in 2019 that has none of the four major sports (MLB, NHL, NFL, NBA) going. Chicago White Sox fans though have plenty to be excited about on this dry sports night in July. There is a lot to look forward to and even something interesting to watch tonight for all fans of the game.
The second half of the season begins for the White Sox in the bay area when they visit the Oakland Athletics. They are currently 42-44 so there is hope that a strong second half will make them feel good about their chances as they approach the long-awaited 2020 season.
The AAA All-Star game is tonight and there are a few guys worth noting for White Sox fans. The Charlotte Knights are sending two players to the big game on the Triple-A calender. The first one is RHP Connor Walsh. The 26-year-old reliever is 1-1 with an ERA of 2.63 in 24 innings pitched for Charlotte. He has four saves to go along with 20 strikeouts and 11 walks.
The other player representing Charlotte is second baseman, Ryan Goins. He has made a Major League career for himself over six seasons but now he is just cruising along in the Minor Leagues at 30 years old, and he has been rewarded with a trip to the AAA All-Star Game. It is cool to see a guy represent the White Sox that isn’t one of the top prospects, and just a guy getting rewarded for being a good veteran.
So the Triple-A All-Star game is an option for those White Sox fans or just sports fans looking for their sports fix on a day where there really isn’t anything else to watch as far as live games. The White Sox have to wait until Friday but if you are a big enough sports fan, the Houston Astros and the Texas Rangers play each other tomorrow night and are the only game of the evening. We are getting through this stretch without sports together.
There is also lots of content to read on the internet, especially stuff that talks highly about how the three White Sox all-stars did to help the American League to its seventh straight win! Good luck to the White Sox in the second half of the 2019 season!
