ABOUT THE BALLPARK PUB
The pub at 514 W. Pershing Road is a Sox fan’s dream. Even before you find the team logos inside, you’ll walk over a full-size batter’s box outside the front door.
The menu features an array of meats all smoked in house, like ribs, brisket sliders and jumbo chicken wings. Tapas offerings include mac and cheese, beer-battered onion rings and shrimp tacos.
There’s even an outdoor patio.
In front of every bar seat is a charging station for patrons to keep their cellphone batteries topped.
And behind the bar? 16 beers on tap, including brews from Guinness, Lagunitas, Revolution and SweetWater.
Richie Rogulich and Nicky Bertucci are the men behind the bar and grill — and they’re neighborhood boys through and through.
The 39-year-old lifelong pals grew up next door to each other in Armour Square, where they had a view of old Comiskey Park.
