Kenny sits down with Sox fans one-on-one and takes copious notes of our suggestions and then promptly acts upon them.

Considering that they used to do jack and ****, this is pretty good in my book.

Team's on the road, beer and food aint that expensive to procure, and they keep st holders happy.

AND they open up the clearance racks.

I love Grinder Bash, it's my favorite season ticket perk. The only thing is I hope we get at least to go on the grass this year like 2006. In 2007 we had to stay on the warning track/sidelines

Its a cool event really.

On field access, access to the visitors clubhouse and both dugouts. All you can eat and drink in the patio area under right field. Access to both bullpens. Access to the media room and scout seat lounge.

Last year they had the trophy and ring you could take a picture with.

All for free.

Does anyone else find it strange they're doing it this early in the year? It's been in the middle of the summer the last two years when it's been nice and hot out. Knowing how it can be in early May in Chicago, it'll be 20 degrees with a foot of snow on the ground.

They did it in May last year.

Actually, they split it last year. Some ST holders had theirs in May, some had theirs in July.

Perhaps they do the same this year.

If this is being handled through the season ticket account manager, I'd check your "profile" I have an e-mail from a couple of years ago in there. I didn't get this year's email nor last year's. I think that may be the problem.

If there is a foot of snow on the ground in Chicago on May 3rd, the conditions at Grinder Bash would be the least of our worries!

I think they want to do it on the weekends and they're home all of June so it has to be May or July....the same way they did it last year.

Per the email:

An exclusive event to honor Chicago White Sox All-Star Clients. You will have access to the United Scout Seat Lounge, the visitors' clubhouse, the Fan Deck, Pontiac Fundamentals, the warning track, both dugouts and bullpens, the Miller Lite Bullpen Sports Bar and The Patio.

Enjoy appearances by a former player, Southpaw and the 2005 World Series trophy as well as an all-you-can-eat buffet featuring Cajun chicken, fried chicken, hot dogs, BBQ ribs, hamburgers, salads and unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks


So, no go on the grass... Warning track/sidelines just like last year.

This is the first time we weren't scheduled for a Saturday afternoon. Our bash this year is 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Friday, May 2. That works for me. :gulp:

In '06, it was about 100 degrees in July, which was uncomfortable but also a great excuse to :gulp:.

For the non STHs who asked, the bash is basically an excuse to :gulp: for free. There's reportedly free food, too, but I don't see a WSI emoticon for that. So it's all about the :gulp:

:wink:

September 28th is the last game of the regular season. Probably Fan Appreciation Day.

I had an awesome time last year, but kind of get your point... if you've done this once, you've seen everything your going to see!

That being said, I'm no longer a STH and would be interested in taking 2 tickets to the Grinder Bash off of someones hands... I want to take my dad, beacuse I wasnt able to bring him last year

Please. Who gets fed up with free food and beer? Not to mention being able to walk pretty much anywhere in the stadium once a year.

I think that chances are that you are probably going to be invited to the one in July. I didn't receive anything last month when a bunch of other people received stuff and I called my rep about it. She told me that I was invited to the one in July and no emails or changes to my sox account would be made until the date was finalized. She said that it would probably take place the last weekend in July but they did not have a date set yet.

Last weekend in July would not be good. Since i assume a fair amount of sox fans, including season ticket holders, will be making the trip to Detroit.

I'm kinda hoping that it's the second weekend in July, right before the all-star break.

It's a time where people get together and watch the greatest show in the history of TV that airs in back-to-back episodes at 11 and Midnight Sunday nights on the Oxygen Channel! After watching said show, you can become a TRUE "grinder." I kid you not, the show is awesome!

Nawww, it's a season ticket holder/Sox group outing goer party/event that they have every season at Comiskey. I'll be definitely taking photos with my new digital camera my boyfriend bought for me last Christmas!

You're female, right? (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)
If so, shouldn't you be a high nun instead of priest?

Hey, it's a big WWW. Plenty of places to talk Sox baseball. If we don't fit your concept of fun, then feel free to grab your hat and leave.

Maybe you can find some of those non-bitter young female models to chat with at one of the other sites...:rolleyes:

Did I strike a nerve?
I'm not the one firing up on people and calling them names on here...
I come here and suggest not signing Dye would have been a good move and you would have thought I had suggested the Sox move to Florida or something...
Suggesting Konerko be dealt after he stunk up the stadium last year was equivalent to saying he should be executed on here...
There are a lot of good guys on here, too...
But many people are angry here and I've seen many of the mods get pretty short with newcomers and people that don't know the game very well...
Take a look at a lot of recent Nellie Fox posts.
Lighten up!
This is baseball and not even all that important in life.

Nope no nerve touching, just a standard response to someone who rips on the site I and many others have spent 1000's of hours and dollars making WSI the best Sox site on the Internet. Oh and go ahead and check it out, we also have an excellent ratio of female posters on these forums compared to many sports message boards because we do such a good job of keeping the riff raff out.

I don't have a problem with you especially after exchanging PM's this afternoon, but you're the one who came here with both guns blazing. Others have earned the right to act that way, while you seem to think it's our great luck that you have deigned to trickle your wisdom down uponst us. No biggie. Sometimes people like you stick around and sometimes you stomp off in a huff. I figure you'll settle down in the long run.

Soooo, back to the Grinder Bash, I had a great time last night. Got some pics, had some food and beer. Also got a cool long sleeve camo thermal shirt for $10 and since tomorrow is my 30th, I got a Swisher Dirty30 shirt!
