Default Lower ticket prices in '13

All of these Tweets below are from this morning. Not sure the parking drop will be enough, but it's a start. A report also just came over The Score (in an update) that STH prices are dropping something like 26% on average.
Daryl Van Schouwen @CST_soxvan
White Sox will be 'taking aggressive steps to lower cost of attending games next season'

Daryl Van Schouwen @CST_soxvan
Sox lowering ticket prices, 'creating affordable seating options that will be available to fans in lower and upper levels on daily basis.'

Daryl Van Schouwen @CST_soxvan
On a daily basis, corner seats in lower deck available for $20 and upper deck corner seats for $7, all season except for Opening Day, Cubs

Daryl Van Schouwen @CST_soxvan
Parking also is being dropped – to $20 (down from $25 and $23).

Daryl Van Schouwen ‏@CST_soxvan
Cheaper season ticket options as well.

Please tell me that dynamic pricing is dead.

Based on the $7 and $20 for ALL games (except OD and Cubs), it sure sounds like it might be.

25% is a big drop. Perhaps a prelude to a BIG payroll cut?

That's what I'm concerned of, although there's not much they can drop from the team's payroll (yet).

I'm also trying to find something more on this (at least in terms of the percentages The Score put out there), but I can't come up with anything yet.

Well here's something more informative on it.

Full-Season Ticket Packages:
Outfield Reserved - Dropping 30%
Bleachers - Dropping 32%
Premium Upper Box - Dropping 17%
Upper Box - Dropping 28%
Upper Reserved - Dropping 17%

Weekday plans have similar drops, but range from 23% - 38%.

Also, apparently Sundays will feature $10 parking.

The Sox listened to the fans. $20 is very reasonable for lower deck tickets and $7 is also a great deal for uppers.

Now, will people come out?

I would be much more inclined to attend more games (more than 4 this year) next year if these tweets are true.

I agree, I like the corner OF sections, $20 is a steal. If this is true, I might buy a partial season ticket plan.

This will honestly get me out to more games next season, I'm not kidding. I like this news a lot.

And you can find one of those for as low as $297 per seat.

This is awesome news (and not just because my group's season tickets in 158 are dropping by 30%).

Fantastic news. I have a $480 credit from the ALDS strip I bought and was planning to buy a 7 game plan. Now I'll probably buy a 14 game plan, and will probably go to more Sunday games too.

Full season tickets in the upper reserved section will be available for as low as $810 per seat, and split season plans will be as cheap as $297 per seat.

The season-ticket holders who will have a price increase will be contacted personally by the team.

The White Sox paid Rich Luker, the creator of The ESPN Sports Poll, to review Sox fans' sentiments on several issues.
