The Chicago White Sox had a very hard west coast road trip to begin the season. They came out of the Anaheim series with a 1-3 record but they went into Seattle and took two of three from the Mariners so now they sit at 3-4. It isn’t the best record through the first seven games but there is so much baseball left to go. Now, they get to come home and try and get their season going on a roll. It isn’t going to be easy but this is a great team.
There is a lot to know about the Chicago White Sox home opener this year.
For one, this game is the first time that the fans are allowed back in the stadium to watch White Sox baseball for the first time since the last home game in 2019. It was very tough for the fans to not be able to see their team in 2020 but it is time to return. As the capacity percentages grow, the more fun we will be able to have.
The game gets underway at 3:10 PM central time. Lance Lynn is going to get the start for the White Sox. He is going to face Brad Keller of the Kansas City Royals. Some folks might remember Keller as the guy who threw at Tim Anderson when he flipped his bat a couple of years ago. The good news for the White Sox is that he is off to a terrible start with his 40.50 ERA. It would be great to see the White Sox home schedule get off to a good start by taking Keller deep a few times.
This is the first time that Len Kasper is going to call a White Sox home game. He will have the radio call on ESPN 1000. Jason Benetti and Steve Stone will have the Call on NBC Sports Chicago. It is one of the best broadcasts in all of baseball so make sure you tune in if you aren’t attending the game. It is so great to have White Sox baseball back in Chicago. Getting things off to a good start against these Royals is very important.
