The Baseball Palace of the World has its first stones laid

Comiskey Park construction in 1910.


Construction began at 35th & Shields on the stadium that would eventually be called Comiskey Park. The ballpark would be completed by late June and officially open on July 1 with a 2-0 loss to the St. Louis Browns.

Think about that one … a new, steel stadium in a little more than three-and-a-half months!
