The Chicago White Sox had a terrible 2022 season. It started with them doing little to nothing in order to improve on what was a very promising 2021 season. They didn’t act like a serious franchise and it came back to bite them in the end.
They finished with an 81-81 record, lots of question marks, and a wasted few years in hindsight. It is going to be a long offseason as they try to fix what went wrong.
They didn’t do a good job keeping the fans happy in a lot of ways this year and the hope is that things start to change next year.
Things aren’t off to the best start, however, as they have decided to announce that SoxFest is canceled again. It was one thing for it not to exist as a result of COVID-19 but stadiums have been at full capacity for a while now in the United States so that isn’t the reason.
The Chicago White Sox are canceling SoxFest in 2023 due to “several factors”.
According to them, there are “several factors” that are the reason why this event has been canceled. Fans have every right to be upset about it as it is usually one of the premier events that the team has for the fans each year. It won’t happen in 2023.
This is the event where fans usually get to meet, see, and hear from all the people involved in the organization. Almost all of the players on the roster show up, and lots of alumni, the manager, coaches, and executives that help build the team.
It is usually extra fun when the team makes a big off-season move that brings in someone new. It is also a chance to see some of the prospects in the organization that might not play in the MLB right away. SoxFest is a great way to celebrate the past, present, and future of the organization.
The hope now is that they do two things. There has to be some way to make it up to the fans that would have gone to SoxFest. Also, they need to do what they need to do to make sure that it returns in 2024. At the end of the day, however, if they start winning again, all will be forgiven.
