So, I’m going to break my trip stuff up into several posts. I’ll do the baseball stuff tonight (Chicago teams anyway). So, we’ll start with US Cellular and the White Sox.
Here are the things I liked about US Cellular:
Easy to get in/out of
View of city if coming in from the El
Great at blocking the wind inside the stadium
Great intro video (here’s a video of it here someone else did. I might have one too).
Here is what I didn’t like:
The food in the place smelled horrible!
Fireworks during the day, pre-game, seemed a waste. You couldn’t see them.
No real view from the park.
Grass was only decent.
Seats were average (and over priced)
It was empty!
Here is the main thing about US Cellular Field. It’s an okay park. It’s not crappy. It’s not that old (about 17 years). It has decent seats. It’s decently clean. But that’s the thing. It’s only decent. There is nothing special about it that stands out to me. It has no character and that is boring.
White Sox won their game against the Twins though. So that was good. After game one, Home Team 1–Visitors 0.
