PatK is spot on. When New Comiskey was built, the Skydome was all the rage. It's what people wanted at the time. Who knew that style would become dated within a few years.
Camden Yards opened in 1992 and was an instant hit. Many baseball fans complained for decades about the colorless sterile box stadiums many teams were playing in. Sorry, but I believe that once again the Reinsdorf braintrust blew it.
