    The 1991 Chicago White Sox season was the White Sox's 93rd season. They finished with a record 87-75, good enough for 2nd place in the American League West, 8 games behind of the 1st place Minnesota Twins, as the club opened the new Comiskey Park on April 18.

    • The White Sox started the season in new Comiskey Park. The park opened for the 1991 season, after the White Sox had spent 81 years at Comiskey Park. The new park was completed at a cost of $167 million.
    • The stadium was the first new sports venue built in Chicago since 1929 (The United Center opened in 1995). It was also the first baseball-only park since Royals Stadium (now Kauffman Stadium) opened in 1973, and the last built before the recent wave of new "retro-classic" stadiums. However, a few design features from the old park were retained. Most notable among them is the "exploding scoreboard," which is a replica of the one installed by Bill Veeck at the old park in 1960.
    • At the beginning of all games, after a White Sox player hits a home run, and after a White Sox victory, the scoreboard lights up in color and fireworks explode in the sky. The entrance has several arched windows. The Sox Shower, located in left-center field, is a place where fans can cool off during hot gamedays.
    • The first game at New Comiskey was on April 18, 1991 against the Detroit Tigers. Despite starting the season on the road with a 6-1 record, the White Sox lost the game by a score of 16-0.
