The Chicago White Sox play home games at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago’s South Side. And for this reason, some fans call them the South Siders.

Originally, the Chicago White Sox played home games at Comiskey Park. And they played games there for 81 years.

However, that stadium was torn down to make room for a parking lot for a new stadium, which opened in 1991.

When the new stadium opened, it was called Comiskey Park (II). But in 2003, the park’s name was changed to U.S. Cellular Field. And in 2017, it was changed to its present name, Guaranteed Rate Field.

A Word to the Wise

While most of these venues tend to attract Chicago White Sox fans on game day, there are no guarantees.

First of all, not all baseball games are shown. And even when they are, sometimes they won’t turn on the sound. Other times, they might show other events. And there is always the chance the venue might be booked for special events.

Also, fans sometimes migrate to other venues. And bars sometimes close.

Therefore, you should always call ahead to make sure that the game you want to watch will be broadcast.
