US CELLULAR FIELD: CHICAGO

While out in Chicago I got to check two more stadiums off my list. One being US Cellular Field home of the Chicago White Sox located in the South side of Chicago.
The park opened for the 1991 season, after the White Sox had spent 81 years at the original Comiskey Park so it’s a bit more modern then its cross town rival, Wrigley(second oldest park in baseball).
