They say tonight was a sellout at 37K+ but in the cub series, they were drawing 39+. How much does USCF hold? According to whitesox.com it holds 40,615 so what gives?

Complimentary tickets don't get counted or something like that. There are a lot of tickets that don't count in the number because it is "paid attendence." That's why it's variable.

Charity tickets, giveaways, promotional tickets to their sponsers, etc etc dont get counted.

Season ticket holders that don't show up at the park still get into consideration for a sellout

I got there at 5:30 looking to buy a single, upper-deck ticket. At first, the guy said it was SRO. Huh? Upper-deck totally sold out? Then he said "Oh wait, you just want one? I have an Upper Reserve available." Fine. I pay my loot, get inside and find out just how "reserved" it was. Section 558, Row 21, Seat 3. For those not familiar with the park, 558 is the very last section in the upper-deck, 21 is the last row (against the back screen) and seat 3 is literaly 8 seats away from the furthest seat in the house. Whirrr...

Still had fun though.

Right. She said singles were available, but she had her 2 lil brothers with her. Neither option were possible in that situation.

Funny thing too, she parked in the neighborhood and actually walked through it to get to the park! I don't know how she did it, especially since its worse than Mogadishu! She's so brave!

I've read that a sellout means that there are only single seats available; if you want two seats next to each other, you're out of luck. A park filled to capacity is considered SRO -- standing room only; that's when every seat has been sold.
