Vote, Vote and Vote Again
Let’s turn Hollywood into Pauliewood. Yes, yes, we know that Anaheim isn’t close to Hollywood, but we’re from Chicago, anything in Southern California HAS to be close, and it seemed to roll off the tongue better than our other options.

Prior to tonight’s game, the White Sox held a 15-minute ceremony to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the opening of Old Comiskey Park (July 1, 1910). Gene Honda was the MC, while historian Rich Lindberg, pitcher Bill Pierce and Comiskey great grandaughter Patti Bellock all spoke to the crowd. The ceremony took place on the center field concourse near the sculpture of team founder and ballpark visionary Charles A. Comiskey.
