My favorite Chicago Baseball Team

I like them both

Chicago is a city divided on their baseball teams. Whether you are a Chicago White Sox fan or a Chicago Cubs fan, you are passionate about your Chicago baseball team.

I've been a Chicago Cubs fan ever since I started watching them after Bozo's Circus. I've been a Chicago White Sox fan when I started watching them on Channel 44.

I was never to the old Comiskey Park, I love going to US Cellular Field, I hate parking at Wrigley Field. There's nothing like walking into Wrigley Field from behind home plate.

My favorite players in no particular order are Ryne Sandburg, Carlton Fisk, Rick Reushel, Jack McDonwel, Greg Maddux, Sammy Sosa, Harold Baines, Greg Luzinski, Dave Kingman, Jody Davis, Bo Davis, Jim Thome, Bruce Sutter, and many more I can't think of.

Below are many great facts about the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox. Take the time to vote for your favorite team, tell us why one team is better than the other, and just have a lot of fun.

Tell us why the Cubs or White Sox are the better team. - Please be positive and nothing vulgar, every entry is screened before being published.

      I prefer the experience of going to US Cellular Field over that of Wrigley Field. The parking, the food vendors, the scoreboard, and the bathrooms make the whole time spent worth the while.

        I love the game. It's difficult to pick until I see them out there. I pick my pitcher and for that year, that's my team. That's how I do it.

        because. :)

        I will never forget the two home runs Ryne Sandberg hit off of Bruce Sutter at Wrigley Field. I still remember sitting at home watching that game and not believing he hit two.

      World Series won by the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs baseball teams

      It always amazes me when I see these statistics that in over 200 years of playing baseball in Chicago, the White Sox and Cubs have won a mere 5 World Series between them.

      To put that in perspective, the Chicago Bulls have only been playing since 1966 and have won 6 Championships.

      Chicago White Sox have won 3 world series (1906, 1917, 2005)

      Chicago Cubs have won 2 world series (1907, 1908)

      When the house is divided, you need something that roots for both teams. A lot of great options out there like this flag.

          I like both teams because I live in the South and don't really care who wins as long as they play as a team and give it their all. I love the game.
