The year 2020 has been tough for many. For all sports, no fans are able to attend games which creates a unique atmosphere for professional athletes. This year’s Crosstown Classic will feature both teams keep a distance inside the dugout and players wearing masks. Anthony Rizzo may even be at first base, offering hand sanitizer. Also, some players, who are not playing, might even be in the stands to keep each other safe.

Cubs vs White Sox
The White Sox have taken game one of the 2020 Crosstown Classic and it was a bad game for the Cubs. They lost 10-1 and Jon Lester struggled to miss the bats.
In game two, the Cubs made some adjustments with Kyle Hendricks leading them to victory.
Today, the Cubs will look to take game three of this classic with the other three games being played later on in the season. One of the key things the Cubs need to do is pitch well and stay away from the long ball. The White Sox have been hitting a lot of home runs in their past five games and this is something that could hurt the Cubs.
