US Cellular Field
Chicago baseball at its best
The US Cellular Field
Chicago is a great place to visit for tourists to Chicago as the stadium has various glorious sporting tales to
tell. This is a ballpark owned by the Illinois Sports Facilities Authority and houses the Chicago White Sox of
the Major League Baseball’s American League. This new ballpark was completed in 1991 at a cost of about $167
million and was called as the Comiskey Park, however after US Cellular bought the naming rights of the park the
field was named after the US Cellular in the year 2003.
This stadium is located west
of the Dan Ryan Expressway and is well connected by various forms of transport. The spectator ramp
is designed to match the contour of the old base grandstand of the old stadium. The stadium saw
some significant renovations in the year 2003 after a partnership forged between White Sox and U.S
Cellular. A new voice board, a fan deck and a 53 by 28 foot video screen became a part of the
field’s legacy after the renovations. These changes boosted the popularity of the field so much so
that it was sought after by many TV commercials and movies. The three different blends of grass
give the field the right ambience for a ballpark.
The food, the arena, the seating and the screen are just
a few reasons why the park is so popular among fans and players alike. Innovation, tradition and sporting spirit
come together and celebrate the sport at this field; for all visitors to Chicago, this ballpark is a ‘must see’.
Visitors can also experience the real action on the field through a game day itinerary that can be planned around
their visit to the state. This is a field which must be seen to believe the impact it can have on people watching
