White Sox, Royals to battle heat Thursday

It's the middle of summer so heat can be expected, especially with a 12:15 start. But Thursday's expected game-time temperature of 98 degrees, with a heat index approaching 110 degrees, will put a strain on players from both the visiting Chicago White Sox and Kansas City Royals.

The National Weather Service issued an excessive heat warning through Saturday afternoon. "Dangerously high temperatures and humidity could quickly cause heat stress or heat stroke if precautions are not taken," the official warning stated. "The very young, the elderly, those without air conditioning, and those participating in strenuous outdoor activities will be the most susceptible."

Both teams will be ready.
