IF A PITCHER THROWS A NO HITTER AND NOBODY IS THERE TO SEE IT…

Lucas Giolito threw the first no no of this strange season. And thankfully it was an old fashioned 9 inning no hitter and not one where we had to debate if a 7 inning no no should count. This is the White Sox’s first no hitter since the out of nowhere perfect game by Phillip Humber in 2012. Safe to say Giolito was a good pick up by the White Sox front office.

Now to update the list.

Showing my White Sox colors, 1991 – Sully Baseball Daily Photo at Noon for April 12, 2018

IMG_2112.jpg

I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for the White Sox. Chances are if I lived in Chicago, I’d be a Sox fan over the Cubs.

I felt that way even when we visited Chicago in 1991. Sure the new ballpark isn’t as romantic as Wrigley. But the fans there love their Sox. You aren’t going there to be SEEN. You are going there to watch the Sox.

Granted, everything I wore for them was black and not white, but who is keeping score?

New Comiskey Park Concourse, 1991 – Sully Baseball Daily Photo at Noon for March 4, 2018

IMG_2115.jpg

When New Comiskey Park opened in 1991, it seemed a bit cold and a year later looked like a disaster when compared to Camden Yards.

BUT there was something that really struck me when I went to a game there in 1991: Their concourses were HUGE. The three days before, I saw games in the old parks of Milwaukee, Detroit and Wrigley. They were all so cramped and the lines were disastrous.

At New Comiskey, the concourses were wide and there were more concession stands which meant shorter lines.

Not ALL the ideas in New Comiskey Park were bad. They just should have made it a little warmer.
