1942 The White Sox and Cubs issue a 150-word joint statement that definitely eliminates the possibility of the Northside team from renting Comiskey Park as a venue for National League night games next season. The Chicago rivals agree it is in the best interest of the city to retain the north-south boundary which clearly demarcates the fans' loyalty to the two Windy City clubs.
2003 Federal Judge James Holderman gives the Cubs and the owners of rooftop bleachers which provide fans a view of Wrigley Field a year to settle their dispute. The team believes the seating provided above the field via rooftops directly competes with the club for ticket sales revenue, and the surrounding neighbors, in turn, have not been sympathetic to the team's expansion plans.
