In 2003, the White Sox and U.S. Cellular forged a partnership, allowing for dramatic renovations to the stadium in the next several years. Several renovations, including a new video board in center field and a "fan deck," were made prior to the 2003 season. Formerly known as Comiskey Park, U.S. Cellular Field opened April 18, 1991, and was the first new sports facility built in Chicago since Chicago Stadium in 1929. The ballpark features a 53-foot-wide, by 28-foot-tall video screen. The park has been used in many commercials and several movies, including "My Best Friend's Wedding" and "Major League II." The playing field is composed of bluegrass sod, with three different blends of grass. The infield consists of dirt transported from the original park.
Soak up the scene:
The Cell may play second fiddle to that ballpark on the North Side of town, but it's got a lot going for it. There're some pretty good eats, the famous exploding scoreboard and a hearty and underappreciated fan base. The team took eight rows off the much-criticized upper deck, but it's still too steep and high. For more on the U.S. Cellular Field experience, including a game-day itinerary, visit Wise Guides.
