The White Sox vs. Cleveland Indians game scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 7:10 p.m. has been rescheduled for 1:10 p.m. on that same date.
The change of game time comes as a result of discussions and an agreement between the White Sox and Indians, after a significant number of White Sox fans reached out to the club with concerns over the original game time’s conflict with the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur.
“Over the past several weeks, we have had a number of our fans communicate their concerns with the game’s start time on September 25,” said Brooks Boyer, White Sox senior vice president of sales and marketing. “Along with the Cleveland Indians, we have agreed to move up the start time of the game to 1:10 p.m. to accommodate many fans’ interests.”
The game still will be broadcast on television on Comcast SportsNet Chicago, on the radio on 670 The Score and on radio in Spanish on 97.5FM ESPN Deportes Radio.
