Guaranteed Rate Field is the home of the Chicago White Sox. For many years was named US Cellular Field. The name was changed before the 2017 season. Personally, I am not a fan of the new name and I will continue to call it “The Cell.” Just like people still call the stadium Comiskey Park, I will not change the name I call it just because they did. I don’t want to judge the stadium based on the name, but I was used to going to “The Cell” so this felt a little weird.
While the name changed and the team changed, the pizza remains the same at the stadium. The stadium continues to sell Beggar’s Pizza. Beggar’s is a Chicago chain primarily located on the south side. It is the official chain of the Chicago White Sox as well as the Chicago Bears. The Chicago Cubs official Pizza is Giordano’s. While Beggar’s is the official Pizza, it shouldn’t be. It is not good. It is so bad they were not selling it upon my last visit.
Considering the pizza is beyond terrible, I was not sad to not eat any. I hope next season they while change the pizza yet again, preferably back to Digiorno’s or maybe to Giordanos , Connie’s, of anything else.
There were some good things at the game that made the day amazing. I got to see the Mickey Mouse statue from the 2010 MLB All-Star game. They also repainted the 42 representing Jackie Robinson’s retired number. The blue is brighter and stands out so much more. Did I mention the game we great and the White Sox had a decisive victory over the Kansas City Royals.
