How the White Sox plan to stay ready for the baseball season — whenever it starts

It seems like it was a month ago when Michael Kopech electrified White Sox fans by throwing a 1-2-3 inning with a fastball hitting 101 miles per hour in his first start of the spring.

That was Tuesday.

Two days later, Major League Baseball shut down spring training games and delayed the start of the regular season by at least two weeks as the world tries to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus. By Friday evening, after an in-person meeting with the MLBPA, the league suspended spring training camps altogether and told players they were allowed to head home, if they'd like.
