It’s never too soon to look ahead. The White Sox released their 2022 schedule on Wednesday, a slate the opens the season with the Minnesota Twins visiting Guaranteed Rate Field on March 31, four crosstown games against the Cubs and additional interleague games against teams from the National League West.
The annual crosstown series against the Cubs consists of four games, on May 3-4 at Wrigley Field and May 28-29 at Guaranteed Rate Field.
The interleague schedule includes the Dodgers (June 7-9 at Guaranteed Rate Field), Giants (July 1-3 at Oracle Park), Rockies (July 26-27 at Coors Field; September 13-14 at Guaranteed Rate Field), Diamondbacks (weekend of August 26-28 at Guaranteed Rate Field) and San Diego (September 30-October 2 at Petco Park).
The Padres series marks the first time the Sox will end the regular season in a NL ballpark.
At first glance, the May portion of the schedule looks particularly challenging, with seven games against the Yankees, six against the Red Sox and three against the Indians, as well as the Cubs series.
