10 things you didn't know about US Cellular Field

May 01, 2012

Chicago's south side stadium may not get the same kind of praise that historic Wrigley Field enjoys, but there's still some pretty cool stuff at U.S. Cellular field. Check out these 10 reasons why the Cell is not second best.

White Sox Champions Brick Plaza: Dedicated to the 2005 World Series Champion White Sox, the plaza features a bronze sculpture celebrating the historic championship.

Fan Deck: This high level deck gives fans an eagle-eye view of the entire field.

Bullpen Sports Bar: The bar puts fans at field level and gives them a direct view of the visitors bullpen.

Rain Room and Bill Veck Shower: The shower is a great way to cool off during those painfully hot mid-august day games.

Fundamentals Deck: Located in left field, this miniature baseball-themed amusement park for kids also offers great views of the entire stadium.

Scout Seats: Located directly behind home plate, scout seats offers ticket holders leather seats and all the food and drink you can handle.

Blue Seats: All but two blue seats were replaced with green seats after the 2005 season to honor the spots where Paul Konerko's Grand Slam and Scott Podsednik's walk off home run landed in game two of the 2005 World Series.

"Bacardi At The Park": Don't miss the bbq brisket nachos. Nachos and roasted corn make for a mean mid-game snack.

Chicago Sports Depot: Stop here for post-game souvenir and admire the Video Stairs custom designed by Phillips.

The Catch: These two words are written above Frank Thomas' retired number on the outfield fence, marking the spot where DeWayne Wise caught a ball robbing a home run and saving Mark Buehrle's perfect game in 2009.
