It actually might be happening.
At this time last month, the most realistic move for the White Sox was to Nashville. Now, in the matter of weeks, there is real momentum for the White Sox to uproot to the South Loop in the “new” 78th neighborhood. Last night, renderings were revealed of the Chicago White Sox and developer Related Midwest’s proposal to bring a new ballpark to the plot of land near the South Loop known as ‘The 78,’ which was first shared with WGN News.
The project also proposes the creation of 10,000-plus construction jobs to build the new ballpark, and 22,000-plus permanent jobs in total after construction is finished.
