Hello! The big event on the city’s South Side was the Chicago White Sox vs the Los Angeles Angels, Saturday
September 8 th
2018, and there are a few different ways of getting to Guaranteed Rate Field (a.k.a. Sox Park). But your writer simply set his car GPS for the ball park
, heading to one of the parking lots where he left the car and walked to a “grassy knoll with trees” (as one member affiliated with CMSC described it) and where the writer joined the CMSC tailgate party already in progress. A good picnic buffet table was set up for members and their friends and families, a table loaded with solid ball-game food put out by Michael Thomas, current CMSC
As game time approached (6:10 PM), ticket holders started leaving the picnic area for Gate 3, our entrance to Sox Park bleachers for a good baseball game ahead. Unfortunately, Sox lost to Angels 12 -3. End of story. But there’s always next year!
