I am sure if you call a ticket representative they will tell you.

I am looking forward to it again this year, that is about all I can help you with.

I think they used to have it in March in conjunction w/ the first day of season tickets going on sale. Since tix go on sale in January now, I guess it makes sense to move the sale back to June.

I'll be attending (on Sat, May 7th) the "yard sale" for the first time this year. Are there any particularly special items you can get there to look for?

I'm going to be there on Sat. May 7 with a couple of friends. Now check this little item out. The Sox are charging $20 for their Day On the Field. The Cubs are doing theirs on Father's Day for $150 per person!

Nice to see the Tribune Wonks are stealing ideas from the Sox again, but calling their event "Hey Dad, Wanna Have a Catch?"

Nice "Field of Dreams" reference there Cubbies.....FYI I think that was a movie ABOUT THE SOX AND SHOELESS JOE!!!"

What's next? Are they going to have a Dog Day at Wrigley, no,wait....even better....a sleepover night, and instead of showing movies on the jumbo-tron, they'll text message something in Morse Code on their scoreboard!!! :D:

Last year the cheapest ones they had we $100 but there were some real no-names in that group... A couple of recognizable names (I got a Mike Sirotka one for $100). Anyone you'd recognize would be a bit more.

The Sirotka was a steal, in my opinion. There are still some Belle and Ventura jerseys with $750 price tags. The lowest of the low I saw last year were around $175 or $200.

I grabbed a road grey #27 Brian Simmons jersey and a black Spring Training jersey #58, Matt Ginter, last year for $50 a piece. 50 buck is about as cheap as they go.

I'm gonna bike down early tomorrow and will keep my eyes peeled for WSIers.

I'll be sporting a red '83 tshirt and a black Sox hat.

I'll be at the yard sale waiting for our turn to participate in the family field day. Anyone else partaking in both?

I'll be there...look for me in an authentic Walter Payton jersey. I might have a black Sox jacket on over my Payton jersey and I'll have some flavor of Sox hat on.

If it rains, I'm there. Otherwise, I have a tee time.

No charge for admittance to garage sale, correct? No reservations for it, either?

it costs $20 I believe?

$20 to play on the field. Garage sale is free, but be prepared for long lines.

They were there...but they were Belle on the Orioles. There was also Piazza on the Mets and Juan Gonzalez on the Indians. I wasn't interested in any of them - since none of those are players I particularly follow. But if you are a fan of those guys, from those teams, they were dirt cheap.

Just got back. Waied in line for about 35 minutes and picked up a Uribe game worn warmup grey jacket for 75 bucks...not a bad deal.

Lots of people in there...took me about 20 minutes to walk through the whole thing.
