I don't know when I'll go. When they release who's going to be there when is when I'll decide. I definetly want to get Borchard's, Buehrle's, Ritchie's, and Rauch's autographs.

Do you need to get tickets in advance or are they available at the door? I've never been to a Soxfest before...I think I'm gonna go this year.

I'll bet the Choice is either practicing his "half-assed" dive or working on his 2002 Gold Glove Acceptance Speech.

I'm pretty sure you can get them "at the door". The convention is held downstairs. My advice would be to just get them in advance Winning.

Year 2024 at the antique roadshow. "Well bc2k, that autographed baseball of Ordonez, Foulke, and Buerhle would be worth 5 thousand dollars, but because you let Bob "I have no movement on any of my pitches" Howry sign it, the ball is now worthless."

Do yourself a favor and double check. I think Soxfest sold out pretty quickly the last few years. I think I heard that this year's event sold out a few weeks ago and that the only tickets able to be gotten at this point are through brokers and/or EBay.

He does usually attend, that's true. But according to my ticket rep, this year has not been confirmed yet. His attendance is still up in the air.

I'm reading that as a "no" for this year.

Assuming that is what he will actually be doing (The Boomer Wells routine doesn't count), then by all means let him skip!
