The Chicago White Sox and the rest of Major League Baseball have released their 2023 schedule. It is a new type of schedule that the league has never done before. For the first time in league history, every team is going to play against every team.
This is a move that is going to help the competitive balance across the league as each team will get a chance to see where they stack up against other teams that they haven’t played against too often in the past.
In 2022, it has been really cool to see the White Sox play teams from the NL West. They have already played some fun games against teams like the Colorado Rockies, Los Angeles Dodgers, and San Francisco Giants.
They still have some big matchups remaining against teams like the Arizona Diamondbacks and San Diego Padres as well. Luckily, with this new type of schedule, they don’t have to wait multiple years before matchup up against them again.
The Chicago White Sox is going to have a very fun type of schedule in 2023.
The White Sox are going to open the 2023 season on the road on March 30th against the Houston Astros. They will then come home for their home opener against the San Francisco Giants on April 3rd. It is going to be a very difficult first week of the season but one that will test them early.
There are plenty of notable matchups that will also include a series against the Chicago Cubs on both sides of town. They will also have their typical series’ against teams in their division and other American League favorites like the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox.
Major League Baseball needed a new change like this for the schedule. Everyone wants to see their team play against everyone. With the advancements in social media, it makes it more fun to interact in the baseball community so seeing more teams will enhance that as well.
2022 has been a tough year for the White Sox so far. They have been one of the most disappointing teams of the season but 2023 is going to be a year that they try to rebound. With some new changes to the organization on the horizon, this could be a really fun schedule to play.
