I went to Comiskey Park about 12 times a season for about 12 years, having a weekend season ticket from June thru September. It was the best place ever to me. I sat on the first base side, about 15-20 rows up (Section 19), and I took the train in from my home in Gary, Indiana. Great food. I smelled like a cigar factory when I got home, but who cared. It seemed huge to me. Greenest grass, and the arch-type openings kept a great breeze in the park. It was NEVER as dangerous a neighborhood as was told. Arthur Allyn owned the team then, and when I came by myself, usually on Saturday afternoons, he came to my seat, checked up on me and brought me a hot dog and Seven-up. Sorry, I can't find anything bad about this great stadium.

When I was in college, I took the train from Philadelphia to Chicago in 1990 just to see a game here. It was the 3rd to last game they ever played here, and I wanted to see a game before it was gone. It was great. To somebody who had grown up seeing baseball games in Veterans’ Stadium, this was like being in heaven. I saw Frank Thomas hit a home run that game, so I got to see the scoreboard go off. The Sox lost to Seattle, but it was still worth it. Frank Thomas has always been my favorite player since then.

I never actually had a chance to see a game here ( I had wanted to go here from South Haven, MI when we were over there around 1984 or so). This was, in my opinion, the first of the early 20th century modern parks! The only thing that Zach Davis had to do wrong (at Chuck Comiskey's economic insistence) was to build the upper deck and roof with columns supporting them! Being a Tigers fan, I was all for a symmetrical version of our Tiger Stadium, and this was the one, albeit two years older and getting nine less years less of use than our old park!

I almost had a chance to go to a game here back around 1984 or 1985 while at South Haven, MI on a day trip, but we didn't go as far as Chicago! Now, in my opinion, I would have categorized this in a unique category, early 20th century modern ballpark! What Zach Davis wanted to do was to build the upper deck and roof without support columns, but was prevented from doing so by Chuck Comiskey because it would have supposedly cost his organization too much money? This used to be my second favorite park to see a game in on TV and reminds me of what our Tiger Stadium could have looked like if it could have been built symmetrically!

Being a WS fan since moving from KC in 1964 and a weekend ticket holder for many years, I was at many dozens of games here. My first date with my wife was here in ''83. My first game was during the exciting pennant race of '64. We had a small lead over NY in the last week or so. On the old scoreboard it showed the inning out of town games were in and it had small red lights next to the team at bat. I remember that I was carefully watching the light as the Yankee game neared its end. They were behind and I recall that when the 9th inning light went out the fans erupted with joy. Unfortunately, we finished the year one game out. Another memorable moment was the 4th game of the '83 AL Championship. Britt Burns pitched the game of his life, shutting out the Orioles thru 9. Unfortunately, after a base running blunder, we hadn't scored either Tito Landrum took Burns for a HR to the of upper deck and we were toast. Food was always great here. I still miss the park nearly 25 years later.

I distinctly remember the 382 ft. signs still being up in the late 1980s and 1990, Comiskey Park's final season. Yet, it was 347 ft. down both lines and 409 ft. to both ends of the inner fence in front of the center field bull pens. This park was most like Tiger Stadium, yet longer down the lines and deeper in the gaps, yet shorter up the middle since the bull pens were moved there. Also, it sat about 10000 fewer people during its last decade of use and was the first ever symmetrical ballpark in MLB.

I loved this old park. In contrast to the pristine beauty which is Wrigley, Comiskey is what I think of when I think of the gritty, golden days of baseball. Comiskey had the feel of every old baseball movie. Clausterphobic, stained, but not dirty. Walking up those ramps as a child, then seeing the field stretch out before you, that was baseball. The food was, as it is in The Cell, second to none. The best in baseball. The Bullpen picnic area, with a field level view of right field, the exploding scoreboard, shower in left field and "Kiss him goodbye" played on the organ by Nancy Frost, whom you could visit with during innings!!!
