While the White Sox are not mentioned in this article it certainly applies to USCF

Article looks mainly at St Louis

Ballparks prove less is more (http://www.boston.com/sports/baseball/articles/2006/04/20/ballparks_prove_less_is_more)

The Red Sox have pledged to remain at Fenway, adding some seats but capping capacity below 40,000. Meanwhile, dozens of other teams are shrinking their parks to Fenway-like proportions. (By Sasha Talcott, Boston Globe")

One reason why this is is because teams want to create a greater demand for tickets. Another reason is because if you aren't in Yankee Stadium or Dodger Stadium, you are not going to regularly draw 50,000 fans every weekend, or at least 35,000 per night like they do. There could be a decent sized crowd of 30,000, but the stadium would still look empty because there's too many seats.
