CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox have switched the time of their Sept. 25 game against the Cleveland Indians from 7:10 p.m. (CDT) to 1:10 p.m. to avoid a conflict with Yom Kippur.

The White Sox said they reached an agreement with the Indians to change the time after fans expressed their concern about the conflict with the Jewish holiday. The holiday begins at sundown that day.

White Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis, who is Jewish, told reporters Tuesday the switch was a good move for the playoff stretch because now he would be able to play on that day.
