Live game coverage on both nights begins at 7:00 p.m., featuring the always-entertaining tandem of Jason Benetti and Steve Stone delivering the game call. Immediately following both games, viewers can look forward to Subaru White Sox Postgame Live as Garfien, Guillen, and Beckham will provide a complete game recap/analysis, plus, live postgame press conferences featuring managers from both teams and player interviews.
In addition, NBC Sports Chicago’s Round 2 “Crosstown Series” coverage will include the return of the network’s “Drone Cam.” The network first employed the “Drone Cam” (DJI Mavic 3 Pro) last month for the White Sox-Cubs crosstown battle at Guaranteed Rate Field. The “Drone Cam” will provide viewers with stunning aerial shots of Wrigley Field during the game, shots in and outside of the ballpark during pregame, and much more.
NBC Sports Chicago will live stream every Crosstown game, including Pregame and Postgame Live coverage, on the “NBC Sports” app to authenticated NBC Sports Chicago subscribers. If you do not have cable, NBC Sports Chicago is included on FuboTV, YouTube TV, Hulu and DirectTV stream.
