White Sox to Allow 20% Capacity at Sox Park to Start 2021

Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

Lori Lightfoot announced that, due to the progress Chicago has made fighting the coronavirus, 20% of tickets will be sold in Sox Park to begin the 2021 season, starting on Opening Day, April 8.

That means a maximum of 8,122 fans, distanced in seating pods six feet apart, will be allowed into each game.

No tailgating is yet allowed, however.

This is good news.

Seeing Michael Kopech, Luis Robert, Nick Madrigal and Yasmani Grandal in person for the first time, not to mention Liam Hendriks, Dallas Keuchel, and Lance Lynn, among others.

The pandemic saved us from having to watch Edwin Encarnación and Nomar Mazara muck up the lineup every day, so there is a little silver lining.
