  • OLD Comiskey

    Even though it was in play not that long ago. I don't really remember it all that well.

    Looked it up today and found a picture on Ballparks.com



    It looks like a great stadium and better then US Cellular.

    Maybe the infrastructure was not that great.

    Does anyone else have some pictures to share?

      That was a MUCH better looking park before they whitewashed the exterior.

        Judging from the picture it looks like the outfield was huge?

              I always loved the shape of old comiskey, it just had the perfect juts to me and covered just the right amount of seats. The scoreboard was also pretty cool cool lighted poles on top. It is a shame they white washed the outside, but the inside was still pretty cool!
              The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time.

                No doubt. I read the idea behind the white paint was to make it look clean, as im sure the brick may have been a little dirty looking. But all the masonry details were completely covered. Too bad it wasnt better maintained.
