Its a nice time if you work untill 5 on Fridays. That way you don't have to ruch, and you know traffic is always worse on Friday. Plus most people are off on Saturday, so they don't have to worry about being a half hour later. I would NOT like a 7:35 start time mon-thurs.

Yes. Another good idea as the 2:00 Sundays were.


Now if they could just get Fox to start broadcasting games at 3:00 on Saturdays....

Ok, so this is the second thread about start times. Has it been announced that they are changed?

Ths is is fantastic!!
Trying to get from Arlington heights to 35th by 7 on a Friday was the worst part about going to a game.

There wasn't any sort of official announcement, but these are what the schedule released today shows.

If the games started any earlier, would be able to get there from the 'burbs. Sometimes takes 1:30 to get there from the north burbs on Friday.

I would NOT want 7:35 start times during the week. For Fridays, that might be a good idea. I get off work at 4, so it's not a problem for me. However, most of my friends don't have this luxury. The extra 30 mins would be great.

Thumbs up on the new Friday start time!!!

Now, get Konerko signed and we'll be all set!!

I like it for Fridays only.

A friend of mine who lives in the burbs has been bugging the team for the past 4 years or so about doing a 6:05 start for Wednesday night games, thinking it'll get him home at a more reasonable hour. His request to have Buerhle start in said games was shot down.

THANK YOU WHITE SOX! Gives people more time from getting off of work around 6 to get to the park.

I really don't mind when games start, since I live only several blocks away from the stadium; however, if it's gonna help more Sox fans get to the park in time, the more power to them! It would be nice to have an already packed stadium in time for Thunderstruck! That could increase the nerves of our opposition greater and help energize our Sox even more.

I don't like it, but then again I live out East.

It's nice when going out to games with the traffic issue, but I hate it from a 'watching it on TV' standpoint. 7:05 is good, imo

Thank God! The Eishenhower is no longer my enemy on Friday evenings when I'm headed to the park.

This is a smart move for the Sox. Anyone who lives in Chicago knows that traffic is much worse on Fridays and travel times are brutal. Heck, even the trains are more crowded. This will make it possible for me to go to more Friday games.

I've dumped my friday tickets for the last 10 years. Now I can actually see Elvis Night and all the other friday promotions. Couldn't get there before the second inning up til now!
Thanks CWS

Coming from Des Plaines, this could help me greatly. I like to get there when the gates open (5:30 for 7:05 starts), which means I'd have to leave my house by 3:45 on most days. These 7:35 starts will give me a little more time to come home from work, change, and relax a bit before putting my car in park on the Kennedy! :tongue:

Yes. In todays papers. Fridays are 7:35p and Sundays back to 1pm
Im waiting for the Cubune headline tomorrow:
"Heathen SOX to start Sunday games at 1:05"
"Pompous franchise say they dont care what people think"

I don't see any downside to the 7:35 Friday night start times.

1:00 on Sunday... I'm okay with it. Doesn't make that much of a difference. People can do their church/brunch/social events earlier in the morning, then head down to the park.

Great move. Living in AZ, it means the games will start at 5:30, so I will no longer miss the first two innings. :D:
