My memory is that Addison rejected the plan. Cubs had nothing to do with it, would probably have been happy to get the Sox out of the city proper.

Pate Phillip was the bad guy, he didn't want the White Sox anywhere near Addison.

I thought I read here that neither team is allowed downtown/lakefront because it would be too much of an advantage. There is a minimum distance away from it where they are allowed to nest.

I was a doubter, but maybe, just maybe we can win with pitching, defense and fundamentals.

Advantage for what?

Soldier Field is a disaster because it is on the lakefront. Only two ways to access it: from the north and from the south. No east or west. Traffic nightmare.
