It is going to be the first time ever that all 30 teams will face all 30 teams. It is certainly going to be a new thing for everyone but it should be very exciting.
We are going to get to see every team play against every team. That means that there is guaranteed to be a World Series rematch, games you don’t see every year, and a little more competitive balance.
There is also going to be just a bit more excitement because of the fact that it is new. These are the three most exciting parts of this new style Chicago White Sox schedule:
1. Post ASG road trip
Every baseball team in MLB has a long road trip filled with difficult opponents each year. For the White Sox, they play two of the best teams in the National League as a part of a nine-game road trip.
It will end with the AL Central rival Minnesota Twins but it will begin against the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets. The White Sox don’t play either of those teams very often so it will be very fun to see them match up in 2023. If the White Sox are an improved team next year, it could be some really good baseball.
2. Crosstown Classic
Even though they play every year no matter what these days, the Crosstown Classic is obviously going to be a highlight of the season. When the two Chicago teams meet, the fans get together to create one of the best atmospheres in all of sports.
No matter what, there is a good chance that the White Sox are still better than the Cubs in 2023 so we may like their chances against them for a third straight season. It is an interleague matchup that always makes people smile.
3. Opening Day
When regular season baseball returns next March, everyone will be extremely excited about it. Even though it seems like this 2022 season is going to come to a sour end, there will be some moves made to improve their chances in 2023.
Their opponent for Opening Day is going to be the Houston Astros and they will be on the road. That is a quality opponent to try and get going against in what might end up being a good year. It will be a good measuring stick.
The home opener will follow that four-game series with Houston as they will host the San Francisco Giants. From that point on, it will start to feel like summertime again in Chicago.
The 2023 Chicago White Sox are sure to provide a lot of excitement for fans.
It is going to be a long winter for the Chicago White Sox. We also know how hard it is to live in Chicago during the winter months with the climate.
However, the White Sox are going to return in the spring with the intention of having a good year. Hopefully, a productive winter makes these exciting events on the schedule even better.
