Great place to watch a ball game – Went to see Sox/Angels game. Had a great time. This ball park is clean and full of real baseball fans. I even met a Cub fan that not only enjoyed the game but loved the park. He could not believe that no matter where you sit you can see all the action. I grew up 2 blocks from Wrigley Field
and attended both Cub and Sox games. You do have to admit that U.S. Cellular is a better ball park than Wrigley. I still do take in a few games a year at Wrigley.
Go to Wrigley! – This field is trash! i went here, and then vommited. The smell is terrible, i see r ,ats on the field during the game... Wait thats Ozzie Guillen! He is soo ugly and makes the stadium look worse, which it is already bad enough... But the sox are terrible, and i want my money back, i complained to Kenny Williams (the GM) personally. He told me to shut the **** up, i then cried, and on top of that i still had to watch the game. Do not take family/friends the fans get extremly.. well, horny during the game. They should sign Richie Sexson.. This field smells also like connies pizza, which i hate! Do not go there either!
Go Go White Sox!!! – Quite possibly one of the most modern ballparks in the US. I remember when the park was first built in the early 1990s to replace old Comiskey Park. Ironically, this IS and STILL Comiskey Park to me (stupid corporate sponsoring renamed and recolored the park from blue to black). Compared to Wrigley, this is considered to be the ballpark for the "New Generation", equipped with digital scoreboard, lights, and fireworks. It's easier to get to as well either via Red or Green Lines to 35th or finding on-site parking in their lots. The food is so much better than the North Side counterpart, and the history of the park and the 2005 Would Series Champions White Sox is displayed all over the park. On hot summer days, they provided a 'sprinkler room" to help cool you down from the hot sun. this is indeed the park for the "new Generation" of Chicago baseball fans and will probably be around well past Wrigley's time. GO GO WHITE SOX!!!
Purists say it's more mall than ballpark, but just try keeping them away when the Sox are winning. – Overview
Formerly known as Comiskey Park, the new name comes with more improvements to the fan experience. In the early '90s, the Sox razed the original "baseball palace of the world" after 80 years of service and built the new version, complete with super-wide concourses, deluxe concessions, seats with cup holders, plenty of bathrooms and a sports bar overlooking right field. There's not a bad view in the house. The upper deck is steep (a 35-degree angle), with some seats high enough to view Lake Michigan.
Helping to keep that old Sox spirit alive, some elements from the old stadium remain, including a look-alike scoreboard that lights up after home runs and a shower for fans in the bleachers.
outstanding! – its a great place to be around real fans.great atmosphere and great food!its better than the dump on the north side.highly recommended!
Great Fan Experience – The park has evolved quite a bit since it was built. The recent additions continue to add to the fan experience by offering better views of the game, more concessions and an improved scoreboard (I wish they would show more replays). The park is much safer than people tend to beleive and has convienient parking and el access.
Fun at the Ol' Ballpark! – With another renovation phase complete, this park is even more enjoyable. Always a great place to watch a game with great fans. The drive to and parking is very accessible, tasty concessions, and perfect for a Father and son to spend a good time together.
Not bad for the southside – I've been to 26 MLB stadiums and Comisky is average. The food and beer are good. The seats, not so good. I sat in the 500 level for the homerun derby and almost lost my balance after a few beverages.
Great ballpark – The park is unbelievably underrated. It's a great place to watch a game. Any seat in the lower deck is terrific. Some seats in the upper deck are good too. Unlike at Wrigley, fans here really care about the game and their team. The concessions are top rate. Exploding scoreboard and fireworks are lots of fun. Organist Nancy Faust is a legend. Access is very easy by el or by car. Unlike Wrigley, a great place to bring the kids.
The seats in the upper reaches of the upperdeck are not good, but no worse than other new retro stadiums. Plus rumor has it the team is planning to address this issue in upcoming renovations.
Neighborhood is not as bad as some people think and it's improving.
Too bad most people are so blinded by their unconditional love of Wrigley because this is a better place to watch a game.
Not as bad as is believed – This park is way underrated, especially after the renovations which have made it feel much more intimate. Sure it doesn't have old-world charm, but it is a great place to watch a game, when there are more than 25,000 the stadium rocks! The food is great and there is so much to do.
