The White Sox will open their Cactus League schedule of spring training games with a home date against the Brewers on Feb. 28 at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona. Major League Baseball announced a revised schedule of spring games Friday, pushing the Sox opener back one day.

The Sox are hosting 14 games at their home park, which is shared with the Dodgers, and will sell tickets for games starting Feb. 20.

A socially-distanced capacity of 2,400 seats (18% of capacity) has been created.

All ticket sales will be single-game tickets and go on sale to the public at 11 a.m. Chicago time Feb. 20. The tickets will be sold in pods of two, four and six seats and socially distanced. All seats are “reserved” including lawn pods.

The Sox host the Cubs on March 15 and play at the Cubs’ Sloan Park on March 23. The Cactus League finale is March 28 at home against the Diamondbacks. Opening Day is April 1 against the Angels in Anaheim, California.

Tickets must be purchased online at the White Sox website (whitesox.com) or camelbackranchbaseball.com or by phone (800-905-3315).
