Just wanted to see who is brave enough to stand in line for tickets Friday morning when they go on sale.

PK and Ben David will be there handing out refreshments to the crowd.

I'll be there. It should be a good way for me to get my opening day tix.

Sadly I have a college bowl tournament in Michigan that I have to leave for that morning. More torturously, I will have to drive by the stadium on my way there.

In past seasons, home opener tickets were still available a few days before the game. Although if you want good lower deck tickets, you should get them sooner rather than waiting until March or later.

I assume Sox/Cubs tickets won't be sold to the general public on Friday, right?

I emailed and they said the ticket limit is 19 per game. Anything higher has to go through group sales.

I've done it for the past 3 years now, its kind of fun, talking to people in line with you, for some reason you get your dumb ass Cubs fans thinking they are getting sox/cubs tickets. Hahaha. Anyway, its usually very cold, as it WILL be on Friday. People usually get there at 5am!!!!!!! I ususally got there at 7:30ish. Yes, standing in line for 3 1/2 - 4 hours is a pain. Its what the die-hards do, or, you can get a ticket plan and bypass the line, and get good seats for opening day and sox/cubs series.

Yeah the dumb ass Cub fans always trying to get Cubs/Sox tickets is a good time.:tongue: Don't they read the papers?

My buddy was like 6th in line last year and tried getting 16 for opening day. The agent told him upper deck only. I was like 2nd and got 6 down below with no problems. The people after my buddy also got smaller amounts downstairs and a couple of days later there were lower deck seats still available!

If you need a large amount for opening day I would suggest breaking it down to like 8 and 8. You might get split up but, at least you won't get stuck in the upper deck.

This is just what I experienced last year. Maybe the ticket agent was still sleeping.

While you guys are in line in the 4 below weather, I'll be at home on my computer waiting to buy me some tickets!

As for Opening Day selling out, I highly doubt it. Two years ago I got tickets on the day of the game (Esteban Loaiza vs. the Tigers I believe).

That day SUCKED! It monsooned for 2 hours, then they played. Too bad I thought the game wasn't going to be played so I headed to my car, when I got to my car I turned on the John & Ed, they said the tarp was coming off the field and the game was going to start in 45 mins.

I've gone to the park for tix on the day they opened for the last 4 years and each time the best tix I've got where in the upper deck. Ususally the wait is no longer than a couple hours. The line is almost gone by 11:30. At least it was last year. But I will try again this year hoping that I will get in the lower bowl one of these years on opening day.

The year of the monsoon opening day, my family went to the game with tickets scattered throughout the park. We got there, walked up and bought a new group of tickets together under the overhang on the first base side of home plate (the last few rows of seats). We had a nice dry spot to sit while everyone else waited out the rain on the very crowded concourse.

Sometimes it is better to be lucky than to plan ahead. Or something like that.

or, you can get a ticket plan and bypass the line, and get good seats for opening day and sox/cubs series.I'm convinced that the ticket plan is the way to go. I mean, who doesn't want to see Opening Day, Yanks, Red Sox, Dodgers, Cubs, and three more games? I'm still trying to figure out how to get better seats, since the infield seats appear to be sold out already. But lower box reserved for nine games and no waiting in line and no Ticketmaster fee is the way to go.

Who doesn't want to try to hit at least nine games this year? As well as hit several more on Monday or Tuesday night?

so for opening day how much will bleacher seats cost?

This may be redundant, but do the Cubs series' tickets go on sale Friday as well or do they release those at a later date?

God, that game was brutal. We actually had to put our beer in the car to keep it from freezing. The Polish Sausage and Bratwurst took forever to cook, too.

Everything I've heard indicates those tickets will only be available to the ticket plan people which is really lame. I imagine if the games have tickets available in May or June, they may release some extras to the masses. Just speculation.
