I came across this picture of Comiskey Park from 1933 and one of the comments under the photo was: "Only see men and boys?"
I've long noticed old baseball pictures filled with mostly men and boys at the games in the decades before WWII. Baseball was hugely popular but women, for whatever reason, did not go to games. I wonder how they came to like baseball if they never got to see it. There wasn't television back then broadcasting every game. Sure there was radio and newspaper photos and stories of games, but that doesn't seem like much. Seeing only men and boys is kind of mindboggling these days.
The first baseball game I ever went to was at Comiskey Park, the original Comiskey, to watch the White Sox play. Our southside of Chicago family was always Sox fans, never Cubs. I can vividly remember my first view of the park as we walked inside. Huge bright swaths of green under a blue sky. It was unforgettable. But that time, many years ago, was part of the opening up of baseball to women and we went in big numbers. How weird it is to think there was a long period of time when women just didn't go to baseball games.
