Wrigley Field = 2
Comiskey Park/US Cellular = 1

Who would have guessed this with the way US Cellular is portrayed in the media?

I dont think it helps the fact that the guy who did it at our park was a convicted felon covered in gangly tatoos who looks like he just left his trailer park. Not gonna help the image, in fact that makes it worse then the two drunken dopes who started stuff at wrigley, at least they seemed to be just liquored up normal guys.

Who in the hell is Otto Blotz? I remember reading in a biography of Cobb that the fan he attacked that day was named Claude Leuker. Is this another example of
lame ass sportswriter humor? If so, he stinks.

He is not only lame, but he is forgetting about two of the greatest moments in
White Sox history! The first was September 7, 1960 when "Superfan" Willie Harris
ran out onto the field, got to second base and tried to slug Sammy Esposito for
making a crucial error against the Yankees. The second was in 1971, when the
entire Baltimore Orioles team jumped and pummeled a fan who tried to get into
it with Don Buford. How could such classic moments like these be forgotten?
