Household fouls after White Sox renames meals sector | Illinois Information
Chicago (AP) – The food area home to the Chicago White Sox was named Larusa Lounge many years ago in honor of a woman who has sold beer and hot dogs for over 60 years.
The Loretta Micelle family scream after the title of Loretta’s Lounge was changed on behalf of current White Sox manager Tony La Russa.
The White Sox said the changes were made after the 2019 season, long before La Russa returned to the team. According to the team, no one noticed it last year as the fans couldn’t attend the game.
“Before Tony La Russa was named manager, the room, named after La Russa for many seasons, was moved to the current 100 levels during the 2020 season,” the team said in a statement. “Loretta Micelle has always been an important member of the White Sox family and despite the name change, a nameplate honoring her remains in her memory.”
Micelle worked in the former Comiskey Park, which opened in 1991, and in the current stadium. She died in 2014.
“It’s a shame they don’t even notify us,” said great-grandson Lou Soto of the name change.
The White Sox said they plan to give the family a replica of the Loretta Lounge sign.
