It is baseball time!

Posted in Life in Chicago by Stefanie on 07 Jul 2016

Sports are so important in Chicago. Chicagoans support and follow their teams so proudly, watching games either at the stadium or on TV is on the daily schedule of almost everybody here. And believe me. we are so lucky to be here because Chicago is one of the four cities in the United States that have all the 5 major sports teams: Hockey, Basketball, football, soccer, and baseball. Chicago is proud of having the Blackhawks in hockey, which by the way won last Stanley Cup, Bulls in basketball, Bears in football, Chicago Fire in Soccer and Cubs and White Sox in baseball. Going to watch a game in one of their stadiums will be an unforgettable experience while you are staying in Chicago.

Let's get into baseball a little bit. Chicago is one of four metro areas in the United States that has two Major League Baseball teams, the other three being Los Angeles, New York, and the San Francisco Bay Area, and is one of only two, along with New York, which has both teams in the central city. Going to watch a baseball game, either Cubs or White Sox, is one of the most exciting things you can do while you are a student in Chicago... And guess what? In Solex College we decided to do it, and what a great time we had.

Chicago White Sox against the currently champions Kansas City Royals on a sunny Sunday afternoon was the perfect plan even for all those students who do not follow baseball, because others who are real fans, took their time to explain to them what the game is about. The U.S Cellular Field is imposing. it gives you a perfect view of the Chicago’s skyline from the south side. Also, there were several food and drink options to enjoy during the 9 innings game. Unfortunately, Chicago White Sox lost 3-1, but our experience was truly enjoyable, and we are looking forward to repeat it!
