There are few things as American as the Fourth of July and baseball, and Chicago baseball fans got both on Monday.

Both the Cubs and White Sox played home games - which were both easily accessible by the CTA Red Line.

It's a great fourth for Chicago baseball fans! Both the sox and the Cubs played home games today.

Ryan Cooper's family of baseball fans did not mean to go to both stadiums on Monday, but had to when they couldn't get great Cubs tickets.

"That's the beauty of having two teams here," said Cooper, a Cubs fan at a Sox game.

Halfway through the season, both teams are in very different states of mind. The Cubs are coming off a disastrous weekend playing the Mets in New York. On the other hand, the Sox are on a winning streak after topping the Houston Astros.

One things for sure, Sox fans are saving more money. A Banking Rates survey says Wrigley Field, the Cubs' home field, is the second most expensive ballpark in America.

Two Wrigley tickets, two hot dogs, a couple of beers and parking, costs upwards of $116.

For all that at U.S. Cellular Field, will cost $68.45.

Which game does a Chicago fan on the fence choose to attend?

"I think that's the toughest decision a Chicago fan can make," said Norman Morris.

Regardless, fans from both sides donned team colors, as well as their red, white and blue.
