Chicago News

CHICAGO — The White Sox shut out the Kansas City Royals 6-0 for the much-anticipated 2021 home opener.

After more than a year, Guaranteed Rate Field welcomed fans back to the ballpark. It got off to a rainy start with a delay, but

There will be limited capacity and tickets will only be on phones to speed up the entry process.

Fans will need to entre the park through a certain gate based on their ticket. They will also be seated in pods and have a specific zone they’ll need to stay in during the game.

All fans two and older were required to wear masks, unless eating or drinking.

The following rules will be in place this year.

  • All fans two and older must wear masks unless eating or drinking.
  • No big bags allowed – only medical bags, small purses and diaper bags.
  • Fans will be seated in pods and not allowed to move within levels.
  • No tailgating.

As COVID-19 cases continue to go up, the city is monitoring games at Guaranteed Rate Field and Wrigley Field. Officials said the teams may go back to having no fans if the COVID-19 positivity rate keeps rising.
