The Destruction
Spring - Summer, 1991

Many fans attending the first ever game at New Comiskey Park were stunned to see this gut-wrenching view of Old Comiskey's destruction. The agony would continue all summer.

At least the tree at left was saved!

McCuddy's was the famous tavern south of 35th Street where Babe Ruth had a beer between games
of a doubleheader.  It was demolished in 1989 and never replaced.
