The following White Sox alumni appeared on the panel at the "Last Comiskey" Book Launch event, May 16, 2024, at the Chicago History Museum. 

About the Book

Last Comiskey” is a new book that celebrates the final surprising season of the “Baseball Palace of the World” – Comiskey Park in 1990. Comiskey Park was the Chicago White Sox home from 1910 until 1990, meeting the wrecking ball in 1991. The book, by first-time author Ken Smoller, is from Eckhartz Press. The book’s Foreword (the book’s so- called “First Pitch) is by Ozzie Guillén, one of the most important figures in the history of the team and who was on the field for the last season of the celebrated ballpark.

About the Author

Ken Smoller (aka “Stadium Vagabond”) is a photographer and writer based in Brookline Massachusetts, with childhood roots in Chicagoland. In over three decades of extensive traveling, he has photographed over 2,350 stadiums in 48 states and 24 countries. Smoller’s mantra is that one of the best ways to understand the culture and fabric of a place is through its sporting arenas and stadiums.

"Last Comiskey" is a 3-part documentary, released in 2023, about the last season played at Comiskey Park, featuring interviews with players, media, vendors, security, and more, and features home video of the old ballpark and its many nooks, crannies and characters.

"Last Comiskey is a love letter to an underrated ballpark for an underappreciated legacy baseball franchise. Even better, thanks to Ken Smoller's fantastic photography - taken when he was a mere teenager! - the book is a soothing voyage to a less complicated, more colorful era of the national pastime. You don't need to be a White Sox fan to deeply enjoy and appreciate this."

Ken Davidoff, New York Post
