White Sox Release 2009 Schedule

Team Open 2009 Slate at U.S. Cellular Field April 6

CHICAGO – The Chicago White Sox have announced the club’s tentative 2009 regular-season schedule, with the White Sox opening at U.S. Cellular Field on Monday, April 6, vs. the Kansas City Royals.  It is the club’s fourth Opening Day at home over the past five seasons.  The other two games of the opening series are scheduled to be played on April 8 and 9.

            The White Sox will take on the division-rival Minnesota Twins in the second series at home (April 10-12) and begin the road portion of the schedule at Comerica Park vs. the Detroit Tigers on April 13.

 The White Sox and Cubs continue their interleague rivalry for the 13th straight season, with the Sox traveling to Wrigley Field (June 16-18) and the Cubs visiting U.S. Cellular Field (June 26-28) in a three-game weekend series.  The White Sox-Cubs all-time regular season series record currently is tied 33-33.

 The White Sox will start interleague play at home when they face the Pittsburgh Pirates (May 22-24).  The first interleague road opponent will be the Milwaukee Brewers (June 12-14).  It is the Sox first trip to Milwaukee’s Miller Park since the ballpark’s inaugural season in 2001.  The White Sox also will visit the Cincinnati Reds (June 19-21) and are scheduled to host the Los Angeles Dodgers (June 23-25).  The 2009 season marks the 50th anniversary of the 1959 World Series between the American League pennant-winning “Go Go Sox” and the Dodgers, which Los Angeles won four-games-to-two over the White Sox.

             The White Sox will face Boston eight times in 2009, including a four-game set at U.S. Cellular Field (September 4-7).  The New York Yankees also will visit U.S. Cellular Field for a four-game series (July 30-August 2).  The final home series of the season is a three-game set vs. Detroit (September 25-27).

             The longest homestand is 11 games, with series vs. Oakland (four games), Cleveland (three games) and Detroit (four games) between June 1-11.  The longest road trip is 10 games, which occurs twice (April 13-23 and August 24-September 2).

The 2009 schedule is tentative and subject to change.  Game times and a broadcast schedule will be released at a future date.
