For fans heading to Comiskey Park for the crosstown baseball classic over the weekend of July 9 ? 11 between the White Sox and the Cubs, there's one choice everyone can agree on. Whether they root for the good guys in black or the blue-clad teammates of Slamming Sammy, they can all get to the ball park and back on the CTA's Red Line.
The Sox-35th Red Line station serving Comiskey Park is just across 35th and Wentworth from the left field stands. The Red Line station at Addison is scarcely more than a long fly ball over the right field wall and Sheffield Avenue from the friendly confines of Wrigley Field.
To thank current users and promote service to both Comiskey Park and Wrigley Field on the Red Line, the CTA will distribute specially designed posters at the Sox-35th station about 1? hours before the start of each contest in the current series. Night games will be played Friday and Sunday, starting at 7:05 p.m., while Saturday's game will begin at 12:15 p.m.
"Our Red Line posters are artistic souvenirs of the service we offer to both Comiskey Park and Wrigley Field," said CTA President Frank Kruesi. "The artwork was created by Evanston designer Joseph Taylor."
Red Line trains operate between Howard and 95th/Dan Ryan, and make the trip to the Sox-35th station from downtown in 10 to 12 minutes. Free connections can be made to Red Line trains from the Purple Line at Howard, from the Brown Line at Belmont, and from the Blue Line at Washington or Jackson.
Green Line riders can reach Comiskey Park from the nearby 35th-Bronzeville station, and Orange Line riders can transfer at the 35th/Archer station to #35 35th buses for trips east to the ball park. Both the Green and Orange Line stations at 35th are fully accessible, as are #35 35th buses.###
