Following a three-game series in Cleveland from April 9-11 and an off day, the White Sox celebrate Opening Day at U.S. Cellular Field on Friday, April 13 vs. Detroit. After the seven-game homestand with the Tigers (April 13-15) and Baltimore (April 16-19), the White Sox embark on a six-game trip to Seattle (April 20-22) and Oakland (April 23-25).
The White Sox and the Chicago Cubs continue their interleague rivalry for the 16th straight season, with the Sox visiting Wrigley Field from May 18-20. The rematch takes place at U.S. Cellular Field on June 18-20. The White Sox lead the all-time regular season series vs. the Cubs, 45-39, after winning four of six games in 2011.
The series vs. the Cubs in May is the first interleague matchup for the Sox in 2012. The White Sox host the Houston Astros from June 8-10 before visiting the St. Louis Cardinals (June 12-14) and Los Angeles Dodgers (June 15-17). Chicago returns home to conclude interleague play against the Milwaukee Brewers on June 22-24.
The White Sox play the Boston Red Sox eight times in 2012, with a pair of four-game series (April 26-29 at U.S. Cellular Field and July 16-19 at Fenway Park). The Sox face the New York Yankees seven times, including a three-game series at U.S. Cellular Field (August 20-22). The White Sox conclude the 2012 season with a three-game series at Cleveland from October 1-3.
The longest homestand of 2012 is 10 games, which occurs twice during the season (August 20-30 and September 3-13). The longest trip is 10 games (twice), taking place from July 13-22, following the All-Star Game in Kansas City. The Sox also take a nine-game, 10-day trip from September 14-23.
The White Sox will open the season on a Friday for the second consecutive season. Chicago's April 13 home opener will be its latest since 2004, when the Sox hosted Kansas City at U.S. Cellular Field, also on April 13.
