As for advising to not sell, no one would own up to it because it is a $500 fine each offense. They did crack down on that practice a few years ago too.
I can honestly tell you that this has only become an issue the last few years. The combination of incredibly high parking rates and game day staff have turned parking in parts of bridgeport into parking in wrigleyville. That is why we came here, to get away from that issue.
When I worked in sports, we made sure to have enough spots dedicated to game day staff and offered train and bus fare incentives for our employees as well.
Sorry to hear the sox make their employees pay to park in the lots, that should be a given benefit.
I'm not sure where you live in Bridgeport, but I was at 34th and Lowe for around 4 years, just moved out of the city about a year and a half ago and I never once had an issue with finding a parking spot within a block of my building. I think the furthest I ever had to park was the corner of 33rd and Lowe. I would see employees parking all the time in the area and like others said, they were given guest passes by people in the neighborhood, not a big deal..
To compare the congestion of Bridgeport to Wrigleyville is ridiculous
