Just wondering what time you guys think it is wise to get down to the Cell Tomorrow for tickets. Now I don't want to be the 1st person in line, just like to be in the first 35-40 people.

This raises a question for me. Does the Sox box office charge
the "service fee" if you buy tickets at the window? They didn't
used to, though I haven't been able to buy tickets there for a
while.

I always feel like my pocket is being picked whenever I buy
tickets over the phone or online or at one of the dwindling
number of businesses that sell tickets (Sears Hardware, for
example). There's a hefty "service fee" tacked on to the price
of the ticket that is way out of proportion to what it should be.

I think the fact that Ticketmaster has a monopoly is a big part of
the problem, but that's a different discussion.

You'll avoid all service charges by going to the park. Definitely the way to go.

That's what I hoped was still true. Thanks, ChiSoxFan.

The Sox used to have a store in Oakbrook Shopping Center that
sold hats, jerseys, etc., and it used to be that tickets could be
bought there without the service fee since it was an extension
of the Sox box office. I think that store is long gone, though.

It's somehow more satisfying to buy tickets at the ballpark
anyway. I'm just a hopeless romantic. :D:

TBA. Maybe never, if they sold out through Sox9 or to season ticket holders.

Is there a limit on the number of tickets you can buy per game tomorrow? Say opening day for instance.

Save yourself the trip and pick the Tickets up the Day of the game... I highly doubt that there will be many seel outs this year, other than the Cubs Sox games which aren't available. I tried to increase my patio party for my Sunday Sox Cubs game and my sales guy said that there was no room for the extra... I wouldn't count on there being to many available to the public if and when they do become available.

I'm getting up early and calling in my order for tickets. I think it starts at 10, so I''ll be up at 7 am PST.
