CHICAGO (AP) — Opening day is less than two weeks away — but home field for the Chicago White Sox is still in a deep freeze.
Sox groundskeeper Roger Bossard says he’s never seen anything like it in 30 years.
Snow is easy enough to deal with. But Bossard says the problem is the permafrost that goes down 30 inches.
He’s got blowers pumping hot air under traps to thaw the field.
The lingering winter is a problem for ballparks in much of the country.
But the Minnesota Twins are catching a bit of a break. Their home opener isn’t until April 7.
