Hey guys,

just wondering if any of you guys knew how parking works at the cell on opening day? Same process? Also, are some parking lots over there reserved for season ticket holders or is it always first come first serve basis. I ask only because I have not driven to a game in about 6 years and have no recollection of how the process works. Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated.
Also what is the closest lot to the stadium?

Go Sox

I know last year Lot G was full about 20 minutes before first pitch, so get there early.

Get there early. But in my experience if you get there early enough (like 3.5 hours before game time) You can pay cash in any lot despite what the Sox site says.

How early are they allowing tailgating?

If the lots are open, they allow tailgating. Be sure you don't walk on the City sidewalk with your beer, that's a citation.

Has anyone ever parked in the Progressive Baptist Church lot off Wentworth? Are they allowing alcohol in the lot?

I have, they do. And if you can get there it's great because after the game you're out of the lot in like 5 minutes if that.

I emailed the rep that I bought tickets for a group through, and initially he said two hours before first pitch. I asked what caused the change from previous home openers, and he emailed back that he'd check with operations or whomever makes that decision and let me know the correct time for the lots opening.

Still waiting on that final email, but if it's like years past, it should be four hours before first pitch.

White Sox Twitter account says tailgating will be allowed 3 hours before the start of the game.

Make sure you arrive early on Opening Day. In 2010, I got to the park 1 hr before first pitch and all the lots were full including IIT parking lots. I had to find street parking many blocks away and almost missed first pitch.

Looks like Lot B opens at 6AM with the opening of Bacardi at the Park

Probably depends on how early you plan on getting to the park. But I really don't know to tell you the truth.

Sorry it's Lot A and yes cash is accepted at that early hour, but not later in the day.

I just picked up a Lot E pass off Stubhub and have never parked there before. How does one actually get into Lot E? Approach from the West on 37th?

I missed this on the Sox website, but it sounds like yes, take 37th street:
From the south, exit at 31st Street and turn left onto 31st Street. Follow 31st Street over the expressway and turn left onto Wentworth. Go straight on Wentworth to 37th Street. Turn right on 37th Street. Follow parking personnel's instructions into the parking lots.

Cool, thanks. Some of the morning news shows are there already so obviously it's open now. Hopefully I'll be there by 9 (if pythons007 ever picks me up, that is).
