Hear play-by-play announcer John Schriffen call his first White Sox home run

Fans got a taste of the White Sox' new play-by-play announcer in Friday's Cactus League opener

NBC Universal, Inc.

The Chicago White Sox opened their Cactus League slate Friday afternoon against the Cubs in Mesa, Arizona, which means White Sox fans got a first dose of the team's new play-by-play announcer, John Schriffen.

Jesse Chavez and the White Sox took a shelling in the bottom of the first, but Schriffen got a chance to show off his chops in the second inning when designated hitter Tim Elko — who had two MLB plate appearances last season —  homered to right field.

The six runs scored in the first inning by the Cubs would be more than enough, as the North Siders went on to rout the White Sox 8-1.

Chicago's two teams meet again at Sloan Park on March 1.
