Hey, I'm a Sox fan from Mishawaka, IN, and I am planning on getting to a Sox game via the South Shore, which runs from South Bend. I'm trying to figure out the cost, and where to get off, but I don't know where I would be getting off. The stops are:
East Chicago
Hammond
Hegewisch
Kensington
63rd St.
57th St. (Hyde Park)
McCormick Place
Roosevelt Rd.
Van Buren St.
Randolf St.

Please let me know the closest exit to the Cell. Thanks, and GO SOX!

Best bet it to get off at Randolph, walk two blocks west to State Street, go down the subway to the Red Line, grab the train to 95th Street. Get off at Sox-35th. Follow your heart to the park. Enjoy!:D:

DIRECTIONS TO CHICAGO WHITE SOX AT CELLULAR FIELD

Check out the 2005 Sox by clicking here (http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/index.jsp?c_id=cws).

Here are the directions to get to U.S. Cellular Field. Take the South Shore to Randolph St. Exit Randolph St. Station and walk 2 blocks west along Randolph St. to State Street; then around the corner to your left by Marshall Field's. Go downstairs to subway. Follow overhead signs that say 95/Dan Ryan to see which track your train will be on. Take any train on that track; it will be marked 95/Dan Ryan. Ride to SOX-35TH Station, about 10 minutes. The ball park is in sight.

Return: In station, take any train on the right-hand track; it will be marked Howard. Get off at Washington; use the elevator or escalator marked Randolph/Washington. This CTA trip is accessible to passengers in wheelchairs.

This is from www.nictd.com (http://www.nictd.com/) , the South Shore RR .

If you go to this site, there are all the scheduling details.

It's an easy, covered, walk to the Red Line El .

Have Fun!

But be careful, the SSRR doesn't run into SBend late night, try it from Michigan City for a night game.

Anybody got a ballpark estimate of what all the subway rides might cost me (not including the South Shore)

Off topic, but my 3-year old son is infatuated with the South Shore Line. I promised him that when he finishes his potty training (almost there) we can ride the South Shore Line. Where is there to go?

Anyway, you probably should take it all the way to Van Buren or Randolph street and walk a couple blocks west to State Street, where you can take the Red Line right to the game. The Roosevelt Road stop is OK too - you can walk just a block or so over the bridge to the Green Line station and take it one stop to Bronzeville/IIT/35, which is right next to the Cell.

Subway is 1.75.

It would seem taking the South Shore line to Roosevelt would make more sense than Randolph. You can get the red or the green line at the el stop a couple blocks from the Metra station & you would be picking it up at 1200 south, which would seem more logical to me. :dunno:
