My brother, for Christmas, got me a sheet of 1983 WS tickets, and I was just trying to figure out where the seat would've been:

Aisle 132, Box 118DD, Seat 16.

Anybody know where those were located?

Someone once posted a link on WSI to a great website that showed stadium seating plans. I think it included old stadiums but not sure about that. I'd love to find that link again. Can anyone help?

seatdata.com is kinda cool

the views are shaded unless you subscribe but if you select 4X it gives you a good idea of what the sightlines are like

Looks like it was in the lower deck, behind and just slightly beyond First Base. I put a yellow "X" on the scan below:

If I understand correctly, you're in Section 118, and "Aisle 132" is just the aisle between 117 and 118. There's also a section 132 which is right behind 3B, but your not over there. I never realized how confusing the old Comiskey was - numbering all the aisles like that.

*****!

I went to Tiger stadium about 6 years ago. I purposly sat behind an I-beam for 2 inings just to get a memory of Old Comiskey Park. I guess it is the little things in life that matter.

Good job. A real answer to the question instead of a smart a** comment. :smile:

Thanks, C-Dawg! Not bad seats for $30 a pop.

Am I correct in thinking that the old Comiskey now serves as a parking lot for the new stadium? If so, have they marked the lot so you can see where the bases and homeplate were? That would be cool.

Homeplate and the batters boxes are still marked, not the rest of the bases or baselines.

There were countless ideas suggested for how to retain something of the historic site of Old Comiskey Park. One of them was to rebuild McCuddy's, the tavern demolished to make room for New Comiskey. McCuddy's was a historic place, too. Babe Ruth once crossed 35th Street to tipped back a few between games of a doubleheader.

None of these nostaglic suggestions were implemented. None unless you count the pathetic concrete tribute literally poured into a corner of The Old Comiskey Parking Lot. The asphalt is the real tribute to the park -- created by people with no heart, no aesthetic sense, but most of all, no class.

Quoting myself:

I guess they numbered the aisles so you'd know which way to get into your section, and be on the correct side of those pesky yellow railings?

I had kind of forgotten about the railings until now; one of those Old Comiskey features I don't miss!

Aah yes, thanks for clarifying that. If memory serves though, I don't believe that the baselines from 1st to 2nd and from 2nd to 3rd are marked. And in the pic, it doesn't appear that way either.
