Chicago White Sox 2023 Home Game Guide

Written By Matt Boecker on March 1, 2023 - Last Updated on March 7, 2023
After a disappointing .500 season in 2022, the Chicago White Sox are back and one of the favorites to win the American League Central division.

Hope springs eternal on the south side of Chicago as White Sox fans and players gear up for another season. The return of baseball means plenty of White Sox betting options via one of the seven legal Illinois sports betting apps.

Last season was disappointing for Chicago. After starting the year as favorites to win the AL Central, the Sox finished 81-81 and missed the postseason entirely.

Much of the South Siders’ misfortunes were due to injury. But a new season means a fresh slate, and that starts at the top with first-year manager Pedro Grifol. The White Sox also added Gold Glove OF Andrew Benintendi.

If you’re looking for a fun time this summer, Guaranteed Rate Field is the place to be. Below, we’ve got everything you’ll need to know before buying tickets to a game.

How to optimize your game day experience

If you’re planning a trip to Guaranteed Rate Field, there are some things you should know before making the commute.

There are parking lots all around the stadium, and they open two hours prior to first pitch. Fans are encouraged to arrive early and purchase parking passes ahead of time. If you’re taking the CTA, the red line Sox-35th stop is a short walk from the stadium.

Gates to Guaranteed Rate Field open 90 minutes before game time. No bags are allowed into the stadium outside of small clutch purses and diaper bags if an infant is present.

Sox games are going digital in 2023. All tickets must be downloaded on a mobile device and presented at the gate to gain stadium entrance.
Then once in the stadium, all retail, food and drink vendors will be completely cashless. That means you’ll need a card handy if you start craving a ballpark hot dog and beer during the game.

How to bet on the White Sox

In total, there are seven Illinois sports betting apps. All of which provide welcome offers exclusive to new users. So before you sign up with a sportsbook, be sure to shop around to find the best options.

Here’s a look at the licensed sportsbooks:
