Chicagomag.com recently released an article ranking the top 5 places to watch a baseball game outside of Wrigley and US Celluar.
The Sox can’t hit and the Cubs never do. But fear not, local baseball fans. There are plenty of other venues where Chicagoans can watch the national pastime played well, and for pennies on the MLB dollar.
