CHICAGO — U.S. Cellular Field is changing its name — which was hard news to swallow for people who are still calling it Comiskey Park.
The baseball stadium and home of the White Sox will now be called Guaranteed Rate Field, according to the White Sox.
The Sox and Guaranteed Rate, a national mortgage lender, have agreed to a 13-year naming rights deal.
South Sider and WGN Radio Sports Reporter Sam Panayotovich reacts to the name change.
Not all fans are pleased with the deal. Almost instantly, people on Twitter started using the hashtag #BetterSoxStadiumNames to suggest alternatives, including "Berwyn Stadium at Svengoolie Field," "Malort Field" and — an old favorite — "Comiskey Park."
On Reddit, baseball fans lamented, "THE NAMES KEEP GETTING WORSE." Another opined: "Too bad Chris Sale can't cut up terrible names."
"Look on the bright side," one person wrote of the name change on Reddit. "It's only til 2030."
The Chicago Bears poked fun at the new name.
