COMISKEY PARK: THERE USED TO BE A BALLPARK RIGHT HERE
September 30, 1990 - Final Game at Chicago's Comiskey Park
Comiskey Park was a baseball park in Chicago, Illinois, located in the Armour Square community on the near-southwest side of the city. The stadium served as the home of the Chicago White Sox of the American League from 1910 through 1990. Built by White Sox owner Charles Comiskey and designed by Zachary Taylor Davis, Comiskey Park hosted four World Series and more than six thousand Major League Baseball games. Also, in one of the most famous boxing matches in history, the field was the site of the 1937 heavyweight title match in which Joe Louis defeated then champion James J. Braddock in eight rounds that launched Louis' unprecedented 11-plus year run as the heavyweight champion of the world.
