My family was. They have had them since 1983. However, they dropped out in 1991. Then, in 1999, we got them again. We had real good seats from 1999-2003. We had the front row in section 129. Then, in 2004 we had section 106 for weekends and section 126 for weekdays. In 2005, we had and 110 and in 2006, too. In 2007, we have 145. However, my tickets for the WS were in 104, because they put extra cameras in the wheelchair seats.

Do you mean before the 2005 season began or before they won the World Series in 2005? We bought for the first time going into the 2005 season. Good timing I'd say :smile:

I was able to go with a friend to his seats prior to 2005. They dropped their plan in 2005 when their seats were converted to the Uniter Scout Seats (I really like his seats). NOt having any friends with season tickets to buy, I just bought individual tickets in 2005. I then picked up a 27 game plan in 2006.

We started about 10 years ago when they had the AL package. You got to see each AL team once.

Then upgraded to the 27 game plan. Then 2 years ago we went to full season.

Well, I was too young to be able to afford season tickets and I've lived out of Chicago since 2001. Plus as I was saying in another thread I have a black hole in my memory from after the strike where I don't remember much baseball at all and I was preoccupied with the Bulls dynasty and the Bears (although they sucked, but ever since then I've been a much bigger Bears fan than a Sox fan for some reason). However, if I had been living in Chicago this whole time I probably would've had season tickets with my cousin the die-hard.

But I do make it to Sox games outside of Chicago when I can.

In 2004, I ordered an Ozzie Plan for the 2005 season. All but one of the games (the 12-2 mauling of the Cubs) gave me a ticket downstairs.

Last year and this year, I've had the 27-game weekday plan in 149.

BeefyD
08-02-2007, 10:21 PM
7-game plan in 2003, then Minnie plan in 2004, then Ozzie plan since.

Still think its a shame that this years tickets are far worse than in 2006.

27 game plan next year. Should be plentiful, and my youngest will finally be old enough to understand that we're at the ballpark.

I started with a 27 game package in 2001, splitting them with a couple of different people (which would eventually become full season), then took over Mrs. Aloha's bosses seats (full season) upon his death, which we share with a good group.

That's what kept me from not renewing my Ozzie plan for this year - none of the weekend games were available in the lower deck (I can't do weeknights since I get up at 4:40 AM the next day). So I'm back to the old days of buying tickets one game at a time, either on the internet or the box office. All lower deck so far!

Yeah seeing that list actually makes me wish I had saved all my stubs. They would have gone back to 1977(my first game). But I do have all my World Series tickets and playoff tickets from 1983 thru 2005 :cool:

08-03-2007, 09:03 AM
I got my 27 game plan in January 2005. Mainly cause I wanted guaranteed seats to the Cubs/Sox series and the weekend package was very cheap for my budget. Made a great decision!

My family have been season ticket holders since '83, when we decided to do so to get All-Star Game tickets. We started at the 20 game plan, then through the years we went down to 14, back to 20, then up to 27. There have been times when we thought about packing it in (when they were threatenig to move, after the strike, and one other time in the late '90s), but we have re-upped every year; so four times I have had a World Series ticket in my hands, and on the fourth try I got to use it.

Unofficial because I'm not 100% sure I've located all of my ticket stubs from the 1996 and 2000 seasons yet. The date of the 1985 game is still a question mark too. It's a work in progress, thus the "unofficial" title.

Smart ass :D:

I thought my timing was good back in 2000 when I purchased a 27 game plan. The Sox went to the playoffs that year, and I have been with them ever since.

Split a 27 game package with one of my brothers til 2002, when Mrs. RHPH got real sick and I couldn't afford them anymore. He gave them up the next year, so I've been lucky in getting games here and there piecemeal.

I told her, for my 40th Bday, I want my own game plan....and since she'll have graduated college, we'll finally be able to swing 'em.
