U.S. Cellular Field is the home stadium of the Chicago White Sox, one of two professional baseball franchises in the city. This park on 35th Street opened in 1991, and is just across the road from the site of legendary Comiskey Park, which was demolished in 1992. The official full name of the new park is actually U.S. Cellular Field – Comiskey Park. Though the new park has all the modern conveniences of the 21st century, including state-of-the-art skyboxes, many White Sox fans long for the old stadium. Nonetheless, there are spectacular sightlines from every seat. Fans advise against watching from the upper deck if you have a problem with vertigo.
Tickets to White Sox games at U.S. Cellular Field are not always sold out, and are very reasonably priced, which makes a day at this ball park a bargain for baseball fans. Monday games are even better, because the already low-priced tickets are cut to half price. The food served by the stadium concessions is above average. The shops and the restrooms are a definite improvement over those of old Comiskey Park. Discount hotels in Chicago near U.S. Cellular Field are within easy access of public transit. Just take the Red Line to Sox/35th Street.
