Its about 11:30, but i wanted to start this thread early because i know season ticket holders have their tickets already. Just put where your seating, what game, and how many churros your gonna eat. Good luck with getting tickets to all.

I had four tickets for Section 159, Row 9 then it just refreshed itself saying there was an internal system error and I had to redo waiting 8 minutes in line currently. I am not a happy camper.

Section 531 Row 19 for Game 1. I got in right at noon. Selected Upper Reserved (I'm poor after all). And thats what I got. I've sat in 531 before and I like those seats. It said when I bought them that seats in those sections may be obstructed. I've never seen seats in 531 that were obstructed.

SEC104, row 26, game 1.

OK this might be a stupid question, but as someone who didn't live in a MLB city (or even remotely near one) until I moved to Chicago a few years back, how likely is this to be a night game? If it's a day game, I'm going to have to sell mine.

As a split season ticket holder, I haven't received the tickets in the mail as of yet. But I do know my seats' location from the invoice.

EDIT: For those of you who are season ticket holders (full or split), the tickets are being printed now. An Arkansas firm prints them. They should arrive at your mailbox September 19-21.

My entire family plus my Dad's secretary were all assigned games to go for at noon. Man we got shafted for game one - I got one ticket. Other people had a little more luck but all got upper-deck. It looks like everything is sold-out. I just hope White Sox fans and not ebay fans were responsible for the lightning fast lack of tickets.

Now I just have to find a way to get from Cali to Chicago...

The word verification didn't work for about the first five times (I'm sure I entered it right - one was buffalo which was easy) and by the time I got it accepted I was put in an 8 minute waiting line for games 2 and 3. And now I've got nothing. Ticketmaster failed for one of the rare times I've had problems with their online system. Sucks for me, I guess.

Wow.... TicketMaster is bizarre...

I just searched for a single ticket to game 3 best available and it said it had nothing.

I then searched for a single ticket and specified upper reserved... and it had one!

Huh? Isn't that still technically the best available?

Keep trying... people cards are getting declined.

I got 2 tix for each game... but not together. 2 lower deck for Game 1 and 2 upper decks for games 2 and 3.

Really looking forward to going to the games by myself, but what're you gonna do? It beats paying a scalper. All in all, it sounds like they only had a few thousand tickets for sale for each game.

Game 1 - Sec. 101, row 8 (also bought a friend's ticket: Sec. 111, row 31)

Game 2 - Sec. 335, row 3 (I've sat in this section before, and IMO they're among the best seats in the house, so I'm really happy about this one)

Game 3 - Sec. 154, row 13

Yay, no upper deck for me. So sick of the UD this year.

Believe it or not, about 30 mins before... I tried it to test it out... just found two other tickets on the site, tried to go through on both.... got killed on each of them...

They SHOULD tell you, though... since buying tix to two different games is within the rules...

Yes, depending on where you're looking. Since they put in the new roof, there are now beams a few rows down from the top, so if you're in the last few rows your view will be blocked for certain views.

the beam might block your view of the right fielder, or, 2B, or, 1B etc.

They have to process the credit cards and check for orders of more than 4 per household, so I would assume at some point they'll release more tickets if orders are declined or voided. Check back every day.

Was in Sec 530 Row 18 for the glorious Saturday performance vs the Yankees. I think the pillar was about even with us... maybe a bit in front. Definitely was a non-factor. I would think rows 20-21 and any seat #'d 1-4 and then the higher numbers (whichever are the opposite end of the aisle) would be in danger of obstruction in that section... but that is right behind the plate so the whole field is in front of you.

Next question is can anyone predict what date the 3rd homegame would be. I am pretty sure it is game 5.

Last question, what is the procedure of getting your money back from Ticketmaster if the Sox Sweep through the first 3? :D:

I'm almost positive the 3rd home game (Game 5) is shaping up to be played on Monday, Oct. 10- Columbus Day.

I bought a single for game 3 (only tickets available) a few sections over in BB. Scattered single tickets were the only ones available that close to the field.

They said several thousand went on sale for the first series (sold in less than 1/2 hour). I would assume only a few thousand will be available for the next two series.

gosox3072
09-16-2005, 08:50 PM
Seems to me that for the later series there should be more tix available because the smaller plans get only 1 game compared to all 3 during the ALDS. What do u think about that?

The White Sox will be have more requests for tickets among their sales reps, MLB, their sponsors, media and others. Maybe several thousand tickets will be available to the general public but I am almost positive there won't be more available to the general public than offered for the ALDS.
