    BTW, do you happen to be from Skokie? Guessing from your moniker...I grew up there.
    I'm actually from Indiana. I don't think I've ever been to Skokie.

    That's correct. The image I dug up is a rendering of New Comiskey Park from 1989. The retirement home was always factored into the plans, and that's why I have always blamed the organization. There were ballpark sites discussed closer to the Loop, and combine that with the original Camden Yards design, the results would have been incredible. But Reinsdorf got a sweet deal from the state of Illinois and stayed on the corner of 35th & Shields.

      Why is there a retirement home next to an airport? Because old people can't hear.

            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.

                        Centerfield has a nice Fan Deck that is available to rent for parties during the game.

                          • I recently filled out a survey the White Sox sent me and I said that a new centerfield video board should be a priority. This is going to be a great addition. The board they have is small and only SD

                                It's actually an HD board, but 2003 technology. It doesn't look bad, but it's tiny.

                                I'm a fan of the news, obviously, but I really think they need to redesign the whole concourse area. Get rid of the lattice and billboards, put a big entrance on 35th & Wentworth, maybe add a party deck in RF to match the structure in LF. But those are pipe dreams.
