Media Burn Archive collects, restores and distributes documentary video created by artists, activists and community groups.
Chicago baseball fans are traditionally loyal to either the Cubs or White Sox. It’s a classic North Side vs. South Side rivalry that has lasted more than a century. In this tour, follow the tracks across town between Guaranteed Rate Field and Wrigley Field on the CTA's Red Line and learn from Chicago legends Minnie Miñoso and Bill Veeck about the moments and landmarks that have inspired lasting emotions and allegiances.
Visit both ballparks and see some of Media Burn’s favorite videos of Chicago greats, plus a video to keep you company on the Red Line in between. After the tour, visit Media Burn online at mediaburn.org, where you can see dozens of videos preserved in our archive about the history and culture of Chicago in the 20th century, including more footage of Bill Veeck, Minnie Miñoso, and both the Cubs and the White Sox.
