It would have been nice to see the Chicago White Sox open the season at home on March 31st but that just isn’t going to be the case. The lockout lasted for 99 days and delayed the start of the season.

Spring training is about to start in terms of exhibition games which is incredibly exciting but the regular season’s Opening Day is what’s truly on everyone’s mind. Now that some games were wiped out due to the lockout, there is a revised schedule that came out on Wednesday.

The Chicago White Sox are going to open the year on the road on April 8th against the Detroit Tigers. It will be a three-game series between the two best teams in the AL Central. The Tigers are going to be the biggest thorn in the side of the White Sox this season.

Speaking of thorns, the Seattle Mariners had as big of an offseason as any team in Major League Baseball. They will come to Guaranteed Rate Field on April 12th for the Chicago White Sox Home Opener. It will kick off a six-game homestand with them and the Tampa Bay Rays.

Things are going to be very fun to be fun for the Chicago White Sox this year.

Once again, for every Sunday home game, fans can head to the stadium for Family Day. It is outstanding to go there on those days, especially when the weather is nice.

The All-Star Game is going to take place on July 19th with the Home Run Derby one day prior. They will resume the second half of the season after that with the Cleveland Guardians on the 22nd. The White Sox are hoping that they send a fair amount of players to the big Mid-Summer Classic.

For the National League portion of the schedule, the White Sox will play the West. The best team in baseball in the Los Angeles Dodgers will be an opponent for the first time in a while which should be so fun.

It will also be cool to see the San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants play the White Sox as well. Even Kris Bryant and the Colorado Rockies should be fun. Luis Robert and Eloy Jimenez at Coors Field should equal fireworks.

It isn’t fun that they only play the Chicago Cubs four times. Two games at home and two at Wrigley Field will make up the Crosstown Classic this year. This is always going to be the case when the White Sox don’t play the NL Central as a whole.

One thing to worry about is the AL East. The White Sox are an elite team too but that division is four teams deep. With the extra playoff team in the mix this year, do not be surprised if the Toronto Blue Jays, Tampa Bay Rays, New York Yankees, and Boston Red Sox all make it. It will be tough to face them in 2022.

All the games that were postponed due to the lockout will be made up so that they can play 162. There are a few scheduled doubleheaders throughout the year to make them up.

The White Sox are hoping that October is filled with playoff baseball. That is a goal but they will have some regular-season games in October as well. They close the season at home against the Minnesota Twins on October 5th.

Hopefully, as tough as this schedule is, the White Sox are able to get into the playoffs healthy and ready to win big.
