Interesting. They refer to Comiskey as an "80 year old classic stadium."

What park have they been working on?

They still reference the renovations (which they refer to in the past tense) as including 2,400 new seats in a new home run porch, as well as a new "grand" entrance in left field. I still think these additions represent the plan for a few years down the road.

those are completely different than what was up before, these are lame compared to the other ones. i knew they were too good to be true.

These may be what to expect for this year but i never saw the old pics so i cant compare. I think the 2,400 seats may be the ones they added to the side lines two years agobut i could be wrong.

I think the White Sox organization's definition of a home run porch is different than what we are thinking if the info that goes along with the pictures is correct. Here I was thinking we'd have a nice overhang in right, ala Tiger and the Ballpark in Arlington.

I think you may be right - looks like maybe the "home run porch" isn't much more than some raised seats created (most likely) for the purpose of preventing fans taking the "Comiskey upgrade" by buying UD tickets then watching the game from the RF concourse.

Or it's the deck above the bullpen bar.

I doubt they would put seats up there because that would just make no sense. Maybe some picnic tables and stuff like that like in the bullpen sports bar. They will probably also charge an extra ten bucks to stand up there.

Thats because all the Great Changes we Saw Before (the new upper deck in RF, the building in the LF corner etc)
arent supposed to be done til the Year 2071.
It will take Sox Mgmt 80 years to figure out their stupid designing
of Comiskey WASNT what the sox wanted after all.

The website also talks about 600 new club seats behind a new home plate. If we ignore the fact that there is no way to fit 600 seats behind homeplate and assume the renovations aren't on the dish itself, this is good news that could even be in place by next season. One of the most dispiriting things about Comiskey is staring down a camera well during every pitch and this would be a great improvement for me who has to watch about 65-70 home games on tv every year and all remote Sox fans.

:D: Hey SouthSideHitman. I agree with you about the look of the park on tv. It is not a tv appealing ballpark from that angle. Maybe they would do something like what they did in LA or KC.

Anyway, I think all of these renovations will take place at some point. I was talking to a sales guy last year at a game and he said that there are plans for renovations for every year, not just prior to the all-star game. I don't know if anybody went by the sales booth at Soxfest last year, but they were handing out sheets of photos and descriptions of the 2002 renovations. One of the pictures had the new batter's eye and in the background on the concourse there were buildings on it. I think someone had mentioned that the previous HKS web pics had a shot of that?

Sooner or later the renovations will come, more than likely will take alot longer than we'd like of course. :cool:

You mean you don't actually like looking at the Viagra sign behind home plate.

:cool: I don't mind the signage as much as I don't like the camera area. I would rather see fans in that area, to give the view some life. It looks very drab, and a place that I would not want to attend. Of course, I am big Sox fan, but for the casual curious fan, it would not make me want to watch a game, having to look at bland blue and a concrete and blue camera well behind home plate :(: :(:
