It's the same as last year. What did you really expect for free? Besides, you can upgrade to any lower deck seat for half-price.

As far as them only being good for April or May, at least this year that includes the Yankee series, 2 games of the opening KC series and one Minnesota series.

I'll probably be at one of the Minnesota games...

The only other free tickets I've ever gotten to see the Sox were through Pizza Hut. IIRC, they were upper deck also.

Even the local minor league team in Rockford gives out the crappy seats as free tickets with half-price upgrades. I guess I'm used to it...

I know that last year I used mine on a kids day and brought my two older daughters to their first game.

I expected them to be UD tickets, but I am upset having to go to a game in April or May. Between work, coaching, and grad school every other Saturday it is going to be hard for me to make it down from Milwaukee those two months.

the only good thing is that april-may attendance will rise about 4k-5k tickets. Assuming at least 1000-1250 hotel packages were sold.

Attendance counts only PAID ATTENDANCE... so there really might be 4-5K uncounted people there.

Anyone remember the Wendys commercial where Ozzie got free Sox tickets, but had to give them away since he was working that day :)

attendance is based on barcode SCANNED...that's why sept 19, 2003 was sold out, yet only 26,000 showed up....posted attendance was 26,000...

I wonder what happened to that wendy/pizza hut promo? I remember in 96, my mom didnt get her free ticket with the wendy's value meal, and they mailed her 6 tickets after she complained.

Don't worry about that. We have had season tix for 4 years now
and we always request opeing day tix from out of our package.
We have split season. Every year we get good seat, best possible. Its usually from the infield to the foul poles. This year they gave us section 102 row 28. Our season tix are sect 100
row 1. So needless so say we are not very happy. They are just
lowballing all season tix holders and I have no reason why.
So I ask this to whoever is in charge of this area of the White Sox organization explain to all of us what we did to you but have blind loyalty to our team. I can get a much better boat slip next season if I chose not to spend my money on Sox games.
