They have built it, and they will be coming. Now, they'll be dressed for the occasion. Ahead of the "Field of Dreams" game in Iowa on Aug. 12, the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox unveiled their uniforms -- inspired by team jerseys worn in the early 20th century -- for the first-time special event.
The White Sox have sidestepped the flimsiness that can hamper teams over-reliant on marquee names, leaning instead on a cast of able fill-ins and MLB’s most consistent starting rotation. Their deadline acquisition of reliever Craig Kimbrel bolstered what was already one of the game’s most formidable bullpens, bumping up the team’s margin for error still further. But there’s also the irresistible hypothetical, as the postseason rounds into view: If they get right, just how good could this team be?
It’s a fabulous day for us at South Side Sox, as we get to introduce one of our two most recent additions to the staff, the delightful Jacki Krestel. Well, OK, delightful now, but you didn’t want to dig in against her when she was staring you down in the batter’s box years ago. She hops on with Brett Ballantini to talk about her playing career, route to White Sox fandom, and the 2021 club.
