Kansas City, here they come. Again. The White Sox, that is, to open the 2019 season.

The Sox will play the Royals in their season opener for the second consecutive year at Kauffman Stadium, this time on March 28.

They will open at home April 4, a Thursday, against the Mariners at Guaranteed Rate Field.

The Sox play the Cubs in two crosstown series of two games: June 18-19 at Wrigley Field and July 6-7 at Guaranteed Rate Field, the latter on a Saturday and Sunday leading into the All-Star break.

Other 2019 interleague series include Washington (June 4-5 at Nationals Park; June 10-11 at home), Miami (July 22-24 at home), New York (July 30-Aug. 1 at home), Philadelphia (Aug. 2-4 at Citizens Bank Park) and Atlanta (Aug. 30-Sept. 1 at SunTrust Park). The Sox play host to the Mets for only the third time in franchise history (also in 2002 and 2013) and travel to Atlanta for the second time in club history (2002).
