The Sox struggled through most of
this period. Still, Comiskey contained magic from future hall of
fame players like Ted Lyons and Luke Appling. The very best major
league players competed against each other at Comiskey Park for the first
time in 1933, the beginning to one of baseball's greatest annual traditions.
The Negro Leagues held their All-Star games here, too -- a dozen
times in the 30's and 40's! Comiskey Park, the neighborhood, the
city and the nation itself still struggles to solve the problems that separated
baseball's all-stars in the first place.

Yankee teammates Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig.
