The Chicago White Sox were an awesome baseball team in 2021. There were, however, some signature moments that stood out above the rest as the best of the season. Things didn’t go well in the postseason but it was so much fun watching them grow together in order to reach that goal of winning the division title.
Of course, there was one moment that stood out above the rest as the best game of their regular season. Not only was the Field of Dreams Game in Iowa the best White Sox game of 2021, but it was also the best of any in the regular season. Everyone who was a part of putting it together should be proud, especially the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees.
The White Sox dominated the game on the scoreboard for most of it. However, New York took the lead late to make it look like they were going to win the game. That was until Tim Anderson took advantage of a brilliant Seby Zavala walk and crushed the ball into the corn.
It was a walk-off win that no White Sox fans will be forgetting any time soon. In fact, the entire country was watching as it was the most viewed regular season Major League Baseball game on any network since 2005. Everything about the game was just so entertaining. Two teams that really actually needed the win came together and put on a show.
Winning the Field of Dreams game was a special moment for the Chicago White Sox.
It was a good thing that the White Sox won it. It would have been a shame to always remember it as the game that the White Sox blew a lead to the New York Yankees on national television with that many viewers on it. This was a huge moment for the White Sox and what they are trying to build as an organization.
They are a good and fun team that deserves to be seen like that. If they continue to win games on a regular basis, they will continue to grow but this one in Iowa will always stick out amongst the best games they’ve ever had.
Unfortunately, the White Sox won’t be a part of the game in 2022 as the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds will be there instead. Hopefully, the White Sox are able to return soon because it was truly a blast. Now, it would be nice to see the White Sox play in games like that in October.
