After a winter that was mostly unfun for fans of Major League Baseball, there will be spring training games played today! We have been waiting for this moment for a long time and we didn’t know for sure if it would happen as recently as last week. The Chicago White Sox are amongst the teams playing on day one of the spring games.
They are not just playing one game, however. They are playing a split-squad doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs. One game will be at Camelback Ranch where the White Sox play their spring games and the other will be at Sloan Park which is the spring home of the Cubs.
We are going to see some notable players on each side. For the Cubs, Kyle Hendricks is going to start the exhibition at Sloan Park. For the White Sox, we are going to see Andrew Vaughn, Gavin Sheets, Jake Burger, and Yoelqui Cespedes play at Camelback Ranch.
It is going to be a great day of live baseball for Chicago on St. Patrick’s Day. Both Cubs and White Sox fans know that these games mean nothing but it will just be nice to catch some baseball on the holiday known as St. Patrick’s Day.
The Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs will put on a St. Patrick’s Day show.
The game at Camelback Ranch will be on NBC Sports Chicago at 3:05 PM. The other game at Sloan Park will be at the exact same time but it will air on both Marquee Network and MLB Network. Not enough games in spring training are televised for it is 2022 but it is good to know that there will be access to both of these.
It will be fun to see these two teams go at it twice at the exact same time. There will be more notable players at each team’s home park while more of the guys trying to develop will be on the road for each squad.
They mean nothing but every White Sox fan wants to see them beat the Cubs no matter what type of game it is. Baseball is finally back and summer in Chicago is going to be magnificent with these two teams in the middle of it.
Hopefully, the players that suit up for the White Sox increase their chances of making the highest level possible. Beyond that, the White Sox seem committed to bringing the best possible players in to help them when the times get tough. This split-squad is the first of many steps towards making a deep postseason run.
