The Chicago White Sox are hoping that sometime during this month of June, a plan is laid out for Major League Baseball to return to the field following COVID-19.
It has been a tough year. We don’t need to get into all that but 2020 hasn’t been the best year for pretty much anyone. It would be nice to have some baseball in our lives as we try to get back to normal following some seriously tragic events. That is why the month of June can provide some hope for what is to come. Hopefully, it is the month that we get to see Chicago White Sox baseball come back.
We want to see Yoan Moncada, Tim Anderson, Lucas Giolito and the crew hit the field and be as exciting of a team as we thought they were going to be back during Spring Training. There haven’t been sports on television or to attend since the middle of March, so another turn of the calendar could mean something good is coming.
There are no plans set in stone but Jeff Passan dropped some news on Sunday night about a potential “Return to Play” that the MLBPA submitted to the MLB. Obviously, there are no guarantees but it is better than there not being a response to the original proposal that the MLB came up with. The two sides don’t agree on much but hopefully, this is a sign that good things can finally happen. If they were to come to an agreement, it would go a long way in helping the future of this sport.
The months of April and May are gone and even though it felt like an eternity, there is hope in flipping over to June. The weather should maintain higher temperatures from here until the fall and baseball would be perfect to go with it. This team is going to be good when they come back so the sooner that happens the better it will be. It will be fun to have baseball back after the pandemic and the White Sox could make us feel better again.
