Comiskey Park used a variety of
scoreboards in her 80 years. Perhaps the most famous scoreboard ever
created (in ANY sport) was Bill Veeck's Monster Scoreboard in 1960.
Hoots and hollers, a design inspired by a pinball machine, and of course
the fireworks after each Sox home run. The baseball establishment
called it bush. Now virtually every park in the majors has one just
like it and even domed stadiums set off fireworks for their team's home
runs. It took twenty years for baseball's establishment to catch
up with Bill Veeck.
The Comiskey scoreboard is covered in patriotic bunting before this game in 1917. Sox players march in uniform for war preparedness.
The massive Jumbotron scoreboard of the 1980's. Seen here from the upper deck catwalk.
The genius of the Monster Scoreboard
was its sheer size. The scoreboard was the focal point
for the entire stadium as this homeplate view shows.
