(CBS) The White Sox announced they have changed the scheduled time for their Sept. 25 matchup against the Indians from 7:10 p.m. to 1:10 p.m. due to the game time’s conflict with the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur.
The time change comes as a direct result of discussions between the White Sox and Indians after a significant number of White Sox fans reached out to the club with concerns over the original game time’s conflict with the holiday, the White Sox announced in a statement.
“Over the past several weeks, we have had a number of our fans communicate their concerns with the game’s start time on September 25,” said Brooks Boyer, White Sox senior vice president of sales and marketing. “Along with the Cleveland Indians, we have agreed to move up the start time of the game to 1:10 p.m. to accommodate many fans’ interests.”
The game will still be broadcast on television on Comcast SportsNet Chicago and on the radio on 670 The Score.
