Chicago Cubs Vs. Chicago White Sox in 2020 World Series™? This MLB Baseball Match-up Could Only Happen During a Pandemic! by Mike Prochaska
As the 2020 baseball season is coming to an end, both my Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox are in first place right now. Being a Chicago Cubs fan, normally I wouldn’t root for the “evil” White Sox, but it’s a pandemic and I believe – I hope – that baseball can bring Chicago together. I can’t imagine how crazy this city will be if the Cubs play the White Sox in the World Series™, which will be played in Texas. Only in 2020 is that possible!
Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, will host the World Series™, as well as the National League Championship Series and one of the two National League division series. Minute Maid Park in Houston will host the other National League division series game. It will be the first neutral-site World Series™ in modern history, as 16 teams compete for the title in an expanded format.
Petco Park in San Diego, California, will host the American League Championship Series and one of the two American League division series games. Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles will host the other American League division series game.
The newly implemented best-of-three match-ups in the expanded wildcard round in each league will be played in home ballparks of the top four seeds. The playoffs start with the American League wildcard round on September 29, 2020. The National League wildcard round begins September 30.
It's going to be even stranger for playoff baseball without real fans in the stands. How will the players react without fans pumping them up? There's nothing more exciting than playoff baseball in Chicago, even during the coronavirus pandemic.
I hope my Cubs play the White Sox in a World Series™ in Texas because anything can happen in 2020. I hope it happens to bring the city together during these crazy times and help people forget the world we live in right now.
Who do you think will go to the World Series™ this year? Let's chat below!
