Cheaper alternative in Chi-Town Jun 30, 2008
This stadium tends to get overlooked, sitting in the South Side of Chicago, as its North Side counterpart tends to get all the glory as the Friendly Confines.

Built in 1991, a year too early before the wave of retro ballparks that would overtook baseball, this stadium replaced the old Comiskey Park, and was known as the new Comiskey Park, before being changed to US Cellular Field. But people (myself included) still refer to it as Comiskey.

While it does have that reminder of being in one of those cookie-cutter stadiums from the past, it is not as bad as one would think, to watch a ballgame.

Some interesting features include:

1. Fireworks whenever a White Sox player hits a home run, or if the home team teams, even in the daytime.

2. Champions Plaza outside the main entrance, dedicated to their 2005 World Series Championship

3. Statues of White Sox players, like Carlton Fisk and Harold Baines

And I’m sure there are more. While lacking the charm of Wrigley Field, it is not a bad place to watch a ballgame, and a cheaper alternative.

Carlton 'Pudge' Fisk - class act guy and great player! Enjoyed him as a kid being a Red Sox fan. He had some great years with the Chisox too.

This is an ignored stadium especially when compared to Wrigley Field. Though the Cubs new owner is making noises about leaving Wrigley (hopefully not).
