In Game

After 81 years at the old Comiskey Park, the Chicago White Sox moved to their new stadium in 1991. New Comiskey Park was built across the street from old Comiskey Park so you can tell who has been a Sox fan for years by if they still use the name Comiskey Park. The home plate location from the old park is represented by a marble plaque on the sidewalk next to the field, as well as the foul lines being painted in the parking lot. Because the field was built after the retro-phase of ballparks, New Comiskey Park has a more modern feel to it and offers a variety of things to check out while inside.

The White Sox have continuously updated their home field since it was first built in the 90’s. The franchise has made the stadium more fan friendly over time and now offers quite a few attractions and fan amenities. There’s a lot to check out at U.S. Cellular Field so be sure to give yourself enough time to do so.

In addition to an ever improving ballpark experience, New Comiskey Park is also the home to one of the most diehard fanbases in all of baseball. While the White Sox may not have as big of a fan base as the Cubs, they have arguably the more diehard following. Sox fans can tell you who the team’s Opening Day starter was ten years ago and a whole lot more, so enjoy the experience of watching a game with some of the most dedicated fans around.

  3. Don’t Stop Believin

    “Don’t Stop Believin”was the official song of the 2005 World Series White Sox and is still often played before, during, and after the games

    Just a small town girl
    Livin’ in a lonely world
    She took the midnight train goin’ anywhere
    Just a city boy
    Born and raised in south Detroit
    He took the midnight train goin’ anywhereA singer in a smokey room
    A smell of wine and cheap perfume
    For a smile they can share the night
    It goes on and on, and on, and on[Chorus]
    Strangers waiting
    Up and down the boulevard
    Their shadows searching in the night
    Streetlight people
    Living just to find emotion
    Hiding somewhere in the night

    Working hard to get my fill
    Everybody wants a thrill
    Payin’ anything to roll the dice
    Just one more time
    Some will win, some will lose
    Some were born to sing the blues
    Oh, the movie never ends
    It goes on and on, and on, and on

    [Chorus]

    Don’t stop believin’
    Hold on to the feelin’
    Streetlights, people

    Don’t stop believin’
    Hold on
    Streetlight people

    Don’t stop believin’
    Hold on to the feelin’
    Streetlight people.
