CHICAGO (CBS) – A big day for Chicago White Sox fans, as the home opener is underway at Guaranteed Rate Field.
CBS 2’s Meredith Barack is here to talk to fans, where they can’t get over the time we have. Many tell me that they hope this is a taste of what the rest of the season will be like: lots of sunshine and even more circuits.
Many took advantage of the good weather by heeling ahead in the fields outside the ballpark. This includes a team of old high school friends from Tinley Park.
They had cold drinks and a hot grill and it’s a moment they’ve been planning for months now. They say the only way to describe the day is perfection: perfect weather, perfect team and perfect season so far.
A season Joe Sierra said he didn’t think he’d be around to see.
“I got infected with COVID. I was in the hospital, honestly everyone thought I wasn’t going to make it. I was on a ventilator, I was in a coma and that was just amazing,” Sierra said. “I survived. I survived and I’m here. And I’m here and I can see this day, I can see this season.”
