A house owned by the widow of former Chicago White Sox executive Charles A. Comiskey II in Hinsdale will be torn down, according to the Chicago Tribune. 

The 9,422-square-foot Tudor-style house at 208 E. Eighth St. in Hinsdale was built in 1968 and sold for $2.4 million in November, according to the Chicago Tribune. 
Realtor John Bohnen, who is also a member of the village's Historic Preservation Commission, told the Chicago Tribune he is not surprised the new owners are going to tear down the home and build a new one in its place since renovations could be costly.

Charles Comiskey was the founding owner of the White Sox and Charles A. Comiskey II is credited with "playing an important role in developing the resurgent Sox teams of the 1950s," according to his obituary on the New York Times. 

Charles A. Comiskey II died at the age of 81 in his Hinsdale home, according to the Chicago Tribune. 

The home at 208 E. Eighth St. in Hinsdale currently has seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and is on a one-acre lot, according to Zillow.com. The home was initially listed for sale in September 2012 by Crawford Group Sotheby's International Realty for $3.63 million, according to Zillow.com.
