The Chicago White Sox announced Friday that the home opener on April 10 against Minnesota is sold out, except for a limited number of tickets for standing room only sections and those remaining as part of season ticket plans.

“With a sell-out in advance, fans are clearly excited that White Sox baseball is back,” said Brooks Boyer, senior vice president of sales and marketing, in a statement. “We’re thrilled to welcome our fans back home to U.S. Cellular Field. The entire opening weekend is shaping up to be a great way to start the 2015 season.”

The home opener will be broadcast on Comcast SportsNet, WSCR-AM 670 The Score and WRTO-AM 1200/Univision Radio, the Spanish-language radio home of White Sox baseball.

First pitch is scheduled for 3:10 p.m.
