Scheduled to appear Jan 14-16:

Ozzie Guillen, Paul Konerko, Cliff Politte, Aaron Rowand, Tim Raines, Harold Baines, Greg Walker, Carl Everett, Ben Davis, Neal Cotts and more....

I'll definitely make an effort to get a Raines autograph.

Looking forward to the first person who asks Carl to sign their Barney doll.

And shouldn't Politte be signing gas cans?

I better see some unfamiliar names added to that line-up. I know better not to get my hopes up though.

You better stand in line a few weeks early because the lines for Christian Guzman and Richard Hidalgo are going to be very long. :rolleyes:

How about familiar names? Like Pedro Martinez, Carlos Beltran, and Steve Stone.

Paul Konerko


I got a feeling he won't be there.

A Ben Davis autograph might well be worth the price of admission. What exactly is the price of admission?

I know Harold was a part of Soxfests in the past when he wasn't coaching and all but is he unemployed right now, did he take another position within the organization or can we look forward to taking Maggs place in right this summer?:D:

Does Frank ever do Soxfest?
Sometimes....but it's usually a last minute thing. He wasn't there in 2004. I believe he was there in 2003 for one session.

Would Love to see White Sox GM Steve Stone on hand with his top free agent signee Pedro Martinez. Carlos Beltran will never happen. Stone and or Martinez are 100 to 1 shots.

He usually does (unlike a certain RF on the north-side) but with his injury & rehab, I doubt he would be able to show up this year.

Frank is in Chicago rehabing his foot, so he should be available.

ABLE? Or interested...

He'd be able - it's not as if SoxFest requires a ton of physical effort. That said, it would not surprise me at all (nor would I care) to see him not come.

So no one will be there who's autograph I really want then? With the possible exception of Rowand... I have enough Jack McDowell and Minney Minoso balls to choke a horse... looks like this line up just saved me $45 dollars that I was about to spend!

P.S. I would also like to say that I'm looking for a reason to get partial season tickets this year with 2-3 other guys... So far I'm not sure if it would be worth wasting 27 days of my life over... looks like that money will be headed towards bigger and better things again this year...

P.P.S. as a group leader for a Patio Party for the Cubs v Sox Game, I'm happy to see there will be a $12 increase for the tickets to that game.

I was thinking... why do we break ties with so many of our former players? This is what would make Sox fest so much more fun. I know that Bo Jackson and Carlton Fisk still live around Chicago. I know that I would like to see either of them and get them to sign a ball. Maybe hang out with Fisk at the bar afterwards and talk about Orchids or something. For a team with a "small fan base" and few big names on the current roster and even fewer willing to show up for the fans at Sox fest, it would be nice to see some of my old favorites.

I dont like the rat-bastard, and he charges too much money at card shows anyways. Why pay him his value, when i can get farmer cheep?

I just emailed my rep asking him to make sure I get on the list for my usual tickets to the Sunday game (requested 10 more tickets this year too as there were lots of unhappy people last year, he doesn't think he can get them though) and to get me on the waiting list for the Saturday game incase any positions there open up. Going into work the next monday after an all you can drink game and bars afterwards is a little rough.

There is plenty of time to do autographs and seminars if you strategically plan out your schedule.

11-16-2004, 12:14 PM
I don't have the total price yet.. but the Cubs individual game tickets went from 33 where we sat last year to 44 this year. I'm kind of hoping that they don't raise everything else?

I honestly rather get my autographs in line. The guys seem to pay a bit more attention to what they're doing and have the proper pens/sharpies. In the crowded, dark bar, where the booze is flowing, you're probably not going to get a great autograph. I actually didn't want Richard Dotson to sign my ball a couple of years ago in the bar because I thought he'd smudge the other miscellaneous auto's I already had on it.

I think it's a nice piece of memorablia if you get it signed yourself. I've been collecting some of the certified autos off Ebay too, but isn't cool to actually have an autographed ball that you can say you got yourself?

He's a good candidate to be plowed in the Atrium Bar on Friday night too.
