White Sox Baseball Players in the Cellular Field
The Chicago White Sox play at US Cellular Field - formerly Comiskey Park - which was built in 1991 to replace the Old Comiskey Park on 39th St. While not as celebrated as Wrigley Field in Wrigleyville, US Cellular Field - nicknamed "The Cell" by local fans - is a unique Chicago baseball stadium that combines the good ole' days of yesteryear with a more modern fan experience. Remodeled in 2003, US Cellular Field attracted a club record in attendance that very same year, with 2,934,134 crossing the turnstiles that season. There are over 40,000 unobstructed seats at this Major League ballpark in Chicago. US Cellular Field has dozens of convenient concessions selling signature Chicago food like hot dogs and deep dish pizza, and they even have a pet-sitting service for your pup.
The last decade has seen a resurgence in Chicago White Sox baseball. In 2005, the Chicago White Sox ended an 88-year World Series title drought by sweeping the overmatched Houston Astros. Chicago's first World Series title since 1917 left the cross-town Cubs - who haven't won the World Series since 1908 - with the longest winless streak in the Majors. The White Sox also have a number of celebrity fans in the South Side, including Chicago resident and US President Barack Obama.
