I know this has already been discussed, but I thought I would post the Official Release for anyone that wanted additional details. You never know, someone might have an additional $1,000-$15,000 laying around. Personally I think the BP is pretty cool, if you were able to get a few buddies together.

CHICAGO WHITE SOX OFFER UNIQUE BASEBALL FANTASY EXPERIENCES
Contact: Martha Black, 312-674-5396, soxesperience@chisox.com

CHICAGO – The Chicago White Sox are presenting fans with the opportunity to get
closer to the action than ever before by offering once-in-a-lifetime, “behind
the scenes” activities at U.S. Cellular Field.

This year, the White Sox are offering six baseball fantasy experiences: the
opportunity to drag the infield; to change the bases; to deliver the lineup card
to the umpires; to have a private batting practice on the field; to watch
batting practice or to host an All-Star Suite. In addition to these
experiences, the White Sox encourage fans to inquire about creating their own
experiences.

Through the research we’ve done over the past few years, we’ve learned that what
fans want most is access,” said Jim Muno, White Sox director of sales. “Access
to the field, access to the players and access to things beyond the game
experience. We’ve created a few options, but we’d like the fans to tell us what
they want to do, and we’ll try to accommodate their wishes by developing a
package just for them.”

Guests who drag the infield will attend a pre-game onfield training session with
the grounds crew and receive six tickets, parking, a scoreboard message, a
souvenir photo, a shirt and a White Sox Experience hat for $1,200 - $1,600 per
game.

The Change the Bases package allows guests to change first or third base during
the fifth inning and receive four tickets, parking, a pregame practice session,
a souvenir photo and a scoreboard message. Cost is $1,000 - $1,500 per game.

Fans who deliver the lineup card to the umpires before the game also will
receive two seats behind the White Sox dugout, VIP parking, dinner for two in
the Bard’s Room, a souvenir photo and a scoreboard message. Cost is $1,500 -
$2,000 per game.

With the Off-Day Batting Practice and Picnic, groups of 10 guests can enjoy
their own on-field batting practice and a catered picnic, use of the visitor’s
clubhouse, a visit by a former White Sox player, baseballs and bats to use for
the day and souvenir group photos for each adult. Cost is $5,000.

Groups of ten or fewer can purchase the chance to watch batting practice from
the field before enjoying a White Sox game from their seats. Price is $300 per
person and includes game tickets, parking and a White Sox Experience hat.

By leasing the All-Star Suite, 20 guests can watch batting practice from field
level and enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of U.S. Cellular Field. The suite also
includes parking, complimentary champagne, upgraded food and beverages, a visit
from a former White Sox player and an on-field souvenir photo and a White Sox
Experience hat for each guest. The cost for the All-Star Suite is $10,000 -
$15,000 per game.

“This is an opportunity for people to gain unprecedented ballpark access,” said
Muno. “The packages can be used as corporate entertainment or incentives, as
well as high-end birthday, anniversary or Father’s Day gifts for extreme fans. A
portion of proceeds from the sale of these experiences will benefit Chicago
White Sox Charities.”

ALL CHICAGO WHITE SOX EXPERIENCE PACKAGES ARE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE ON ANY HOME
DATE, BASED ON AVAILABILITY. FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO RESERVE A DATE, CONTACT
MARTHA BLACK AT 312- 674- 5396 OR EMAIL SOXEXPERIENCE@CHISOX.COM.

this is the biggest mistake of all time. I remember hearing about it during the preview for the news during the sox game and I thought it was going to be a contest that you could enter for free. A perfect thing that the Sox could do for fan relationship. Then I heard the money figures and I wasn't suprised because you-know-who owns the white sox.
