Call the Sox (312-674-1000) and tell them you want to buy season tickets-that guarantees you will be put on hold. Put on the speakerphone. This is where the fun begins. The hold "music" is a collection of Rooney calls from the season-homers, final outs, etc. It's great!:D:

JR is going to see that there's a lot of calls about people interested in season tickets and the prices are going to go sky high.

Or try e-mailing your ticket rep and getting no response whatsoever. Sent email out on Monday 10/24 and still waiting... :mad:

I've tried everything but kidnapping. It seems my Rep is no longer employed by the team. My email to him came back undeliverable and when I called his number, some other guy has it now. I'm told that they have a staff of 4 salespeople (they never expected the demand to be so great) and the staff was told that they need to take vacations in November because December is the busy month when final deposits are due.

They also thought that they would get "around" 300 requests when they made the offer of buying 2006 season tickets in Sept and get '05 WS tickets. They got 3300 Internet requests and 1300 telephone requests!

Brooks, you should have asked us what the response would be like, we would have told you staff up to 40 or 50 people through New Year's!

I'm right there with you. The lack of response has been disappointing.

In addition I don't think thier new interns in the ticket office start until after thanksgiving.

I talked to Brooks about the internship but it never fit my career plan because the internship runs from Nov-Sept. Thus it's almost impossible to do it in college unless you live in Chicago.

4 people working for sales...that seems pretty pitiful if you ask me. It makes their customer service seem very bad.

Well, I got called back today! I got a full season package in section 112 (so much for the 100 level being sold out). Happy day!:bandance:

There was never a need for more. Such a suddent change of events will leave a corporation low-staffed for a period of time. Just something to deal with.

My ticket rep doesnt even do season ticket sales, but he is right now. They basically have everyone they can helping out with ticketing. They are doing the best they can. BTW if you guys dont get through via the 312-674-1000 number, try 312-674-5330. It is the direct line to the Sales Office.
