I just got a call from Jerry Owens just now. My rep made the call and said that he had someone who wanted to speak to me. Anyway, Jerry Owens gets on the phone and was like hey Jenn its Jerry Owens. Just wanted to give you call and thank you for being a season ticket holder. He said he was in for Soxfest this weekend. I asked him if he was prepared for the weather he was coming in to. He was like absolutely not. I just came from California and I was not prepared for single digit weather at all. He said he was really looking forward to the 2008 season and said that he is hoping things will be a lot different. We talked about how spring training was right around the corner and he said he was really excited to get started again. He rattled off the amount of weeks until pitchers and catchers report to ST.


Make sure you all answer your phones because it is not a recording. I chatted with him for about 5 min.

Rep: Hi Scott this is Tyler. I have someone who wants to talk to you
Toby: Hi Scott this is Toby Hall. I just wanted to thank you for being a 2008 season ticket holder. I would also like to thank you for moving out of 158. I thought I was going to have to get a restraining order against you.
Scott: Toby Hall you are my favorite ever. I even bought an authentic Toby Hall jersey. Want to meet for a beer?
Toby: Scott you clearly don't get that you need to see someone about your obsession with me.

Toby: you know scott, the restraining order doesn't end with the baseball season. It's still good.

I got a call from the new third base coach Jeff Cox. He seemed like a really nice guy. We talked a little about the expectations of the team. He seemed really energetic and excited about the upcoming season.

Since my rep has never called me, I'm guessing a player won't either.

He seemed like a heck of a guy and really seemed ready to go. He had the kind of excitement thats infectious. We talked for a bit until he said that he was getting "the look" meaning he had to call someone else on his list. For once he talked more than I did :smile:

Now there is something that is unusual. I am guessing you still got more words in though.:redneck

I'm sure it is people who have had season tickets the longest and then they work their way down.

Wow, that's really cool. Unlike many on here, I'm a Jerry fan, so I think that's really neat.
Too bad I'm only a lowly Yankees Ticket holder :D:

That's a very neat thing the Sox do.

Kinda would like to be a season ticket holder now.

Anyone who gets their call later, tell the player "Frontman says hi."

Hey Jenn,
What showed up on your caller ID? I got a call from Pensacola, FL today around 2:00. I said hello a few times then hung up when no one said anything. Maybe it was HAROLD! :o:

Do you think that 27 game plan holders get calls too, or just full season holders? It would be sweet if I got a call would really make my day:D:.

Full season over 20 years and never got a call. Wouldn't know what to say.
Assume it is random.

Yea, I made mine about 2 1/2 weeks ago so I owe them nothing. They had a little spot on the channel 7 news about the players calling season ticket holders this afternoon. My guess is that they will probably be doing the same this tomorrow because of soxfest starting tomorrow nite and all.

I got an email from my rep Matt, and he said he didn't have my current phone number. I changed my number 2 weeks ago and didn't think to update him (cingular really screwed me with 'stealing' my number). Anyway the email said I'd get a call from a former player. I wonder who that would have been. Guess I'll never know:rolleyes:

This is great PR by the White Sox organization. Kudos to them!

I wonder if they've thought about having players call former season ticket holders who have not renewed? I wonder if having Thome, Buehrle or Paulie lay a guilt trip on non-renewals would get them to renew?

They don't speak spanish in Spain.
"Castilian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_language)", universally known to non-Spanish speakers as "Spanish" (while called both espaņol and castellano in the language itself) is the official language throughout Spain, but other regional languages (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regional_language) are also spoken, and are the primary languages in some of their respective regions.
