The Chicago White Sox and the rest of Major League Baseball would be thrilled to have their season get going as soon as July 1st.

There have been multiple reports of Major League Baseball getting it’s Spring Training Part II underway halfway through June and then getting the season going on July 1st. That would be great for the Chicago White Sox. They have been waiting for this season to get underway since the Washington Nationals won the World Series in late October. Their time to start winning is now and the season can’t come quick enough.

This coronavirus pandemic has hit the White Sox the hardest. Yeah, there were some other excited teams like the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers but those teams have been good for a while. It is the White Sox time to shine out there and they have to continue to wait.  Well, hopefully, this news that the MLB is working on this plan comes to fruition.

A lot of people probably roll their eyes reading this because it feels like the billionth time that rumors of a plan have come out. The reason this one feels a little bit different is because of the fact that the rumors state that the idea will be discussed by the MLB in the coming days. There was also the report early last week about the division alignment and them playing in their home ballparks with no fans.

Well, those two stories line up here. They would be playing in their home ballparks according to this rumor which would be good. It could see some crazy divisional matchups over the year as the White Sox could be paired up with all of the midwest teams, including the Chicago Cubs. It could end up being a very exciting time for this organization if things start to come together.

With players like Yoan Moncada, Luis Robert, Michael Kopech, Eloy Jimenez, Tim Anderson, and Lucas Giolito amongst others coming in this year with a lot to prove, things could get very fun. Hopefully, this rumor or some variation of it comes true.
