Chicago White Sox: 3 best games of the 2021 season
Field of Dreams Game
The Field of Dreams game was everything the Chicago White Sox needed and more.
The Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees, based on the circumstances, played the greatest regular-season game of all time at the Field of Dreams in Iowa. The two most prominent teams in the movie Field of Dreams brought it to life in the middle of a cornfield. It started with the players coming out of the corn to take the field as Kevin Costner, the star of the movie, gives a speech.
From that moment on, it became a real-life dream. The White Sox dominated most of the game but they allowed the Yankees to crawl back into it late in the game. In fact, the Yankees took an 8-7 lead in the top of the ninth inning by scoring four runs. However, the White Sox had their chance in the bottom of the ninth and it was as magical as you’d expect.
Seby Zavala drew a walk in one of the most important at-bats of the entire season. Following that, Tim Anderson came to bat. He turned the movie scene into an actual movie by hitting a walk-off home run to give the White Sox the win. It was a magical moment that the White Sox really needed in the dog days of the season.
When we say it was the best game in regular-season history, it may be a bit of recency bias but it feels like it definitely is up there. It was a very special game at a very special place following a very tough year for a lot of people. Baseball was the real winner that day.
Hopefully, you enjoyed these moments as much as we did. It was a great season for the White Sox that isn’t over yet. We can only hope that the postseason produces more magical moments and the White Sox make a deep run.
