Having one set cheap price in the upper deck would be a good PR move for the White Sox. It would also attract more fans to the games. The more fans at the games usually means more money spent on concessions and parking.
I will NEVER, EVER sit in the upperdeck again unless the ballpark is so jammed that I have no choice but to.
Upperdeck tickets are already dirt cheap and are usually given away for free (as was the case with my tickets this past Saturday after buying a set of new car tires). The upperdeck is as bad as Wrigely's bleachers. Fraternities, family reunions -- large groups of people there to drink and socialize without having any interest in the game, win or lose.
All because those people either got those tickets for cheap or for nothing.
No thank you.
