Did you know?

As we travel from one Major League Baseball stadium to the next, we are really enjoying how each stadium is completely different and has its own character, history, and architecture. Here are a few of the unusual facts about US Cellular Field that we found especially interesting.

Facts Unique to
US Cellular Field


TRYOUTS

  • The Chicago White Sox hold their annual tryout camp during Spring Training. It is an “open” tryout, which means everyone is welcome. Participants are responsible for their own travel plans and accommodations. They also should bring with them any equipment they deem necessary, i.e. spikes, gloves, etc. Balls and bats will be provided.

STATS

  • Capacity: 40,615 fans
  • Mascot:
    Southpaw
  • Stadium opened April 18, 1991

Chicago White Sox Charities Game Auction

Autographed new or game-used baseball memorabilia is displayed for auction at the White Sox Charities Kiosk, located behind home plate on the 100 and 500 levels, every home game. Bidding ends 80 minutes after the first pitch. Winning bidders have the opportunity to claim their items for 30 minutes after the close of the auction. Winners who have not claimed within 30 minutes will be contacted the next business day. Having an auction during every home game allows fans to purchase unique White Sox and other baseball memorabilia that is not offered for sale to the public.

Our Reflections on the Game

Advice and reflections from the Glanville Team

Thoughts from James


I am surprised that this field is as nice as it is because everyone talks about Wrigley in Chicago and doesn’t give the White Sox or Cellular Field enough credit. I liked this stadium. It was easy to see the game from everywhere and it was a fun crowd. We went on Grateful Dead night so there were a lot of extra things going on, like crazy shirts and music and people with long beards, and I don’t mean the baseball players. We found ICEE drinks and it was an easy stadium to get in and out of. Lots of cabs and a special line for cabs one block from the stadium, so that made it easy to leave once the game was over. All in all, Cellular Field was a good ballpark that I think doesn’t get enough credit.James

Christie’s Thoughts

Since it was Grateful Dead night there was a lot happening. Free shirt give away, music, and the score board was decorated in a “Grateful Dead” kind of way. We enjoyed the ball park and found it to be very tidy and well layed out. Easy to get in and out. In fact they had a designated cab line for ease of service back into the city. The fans were great! I think this field was an easy place to watch MLB.Christie
