The Chicago White Sox are, in theory, having a regular 2021 baseball season. As such, it only makes sense to release a theoretical Cactus League schedule, which they did just this morning.
Next spring will feature some hard-core crosstown action, with one game at Camelback (March 19) against the ivy bumblers, and three (March 26, 29-30) in Mesa.
That combination of an uncommon two days off and two split-squads, in consecutive weeks, is interesting. As is a third split-squad day a week later.
For stuff of this nature, we like to more or less edit the release for style and just ship it out directly to you, so here it is:
