Glad to see other teams get it.

I bet most of the brewers food stands will actually be opened throughout the park.

God, it's such a kick in the balls when you see teams do stuff like that just to keep their fans happy, while the Sox sit by idly, thinking, "**** it, they'll come out for mullet/Elvis night part 8,000 and the bobbleheads".

If you ever checked the Sox Save of the Week, cheap tickets with $10 vouchers for food or souveniers have been offered quite often. They didn't need their star player being suspended for the year to do it.

In fact on the website right now is OF reserved tickets for $12 plus a free hot dog.

This is literally the first time I've ever heard of this. Do the Sox even market this?

It's been on their website since last season. It's been mentioned on the broadcast several times.

Are you on the Sox e-mail list? I get e-mails all the time about stuff like this.

I was just about to post the same thing.

Even when they to do something fan friendly, they **** all over themselves.

If you are on their email list, they send it to you. If you watch the broadcast they mention it. If you look at their website it is on there. What else are they supposed to do?

If you don't want to be on their email list, or watch their games on TV or go to their website, chances are you will not know about their discounts. The same can be said about the Brewers and every other team.

Dealing with bureaucracies (especially corrupt ones) isn't easy or fun. The miserable Soldier Field turf is proof that the White Sox are not the only ones getting something less than spectacular service from the public entities owning the venues.
Since the park has opened they have:

- cut out seats from the upper deck
- added a short roof of the top of the upper deck
- replaced regular seats with the scout seats
- added the fundamentals deck
- added the fan deck
- changed the paint color on the seats
- added the scoreboard in RF

I don't think it would be all that hard for them to change their other scoreboard should they choose to. Soldier Field isn't a very good comparison because that is also a historical landmark, same with Wrigley, which brings many more restrictions with it.

I don't know how much more they could market this short of hiring a guy to come to your door and tell you in person. I get at least 1 email per week on the subject.

I'm not on any email lists. Nor have I been inclined to watch many bad baseball games on TV lately. However I have been to 2 games in the past week. I see no mention of it at the park. They could maybe put commercials on non-Sox programming to put the word out.

The team is bad. Casual fans don't watch their ****ty baseball team on TV or listen on the radio. They need to find other avenues to get the word out to more than the hardcore fans

Soldier Field's landmark status was stripped following the renovations

Soldier Field is not an historical landmark, and the Sox renovations were from funds from a naming rights deal. The scoreboard will be replaced eventually and it will probably be the best scoreboard in the league for a season, but like smartphones and flat screen TVs, it will be outdated fairly quickly, but unlike those, it makes zero sense replacing them every couple of years.

If you watched the games last year when they were in first place most of the season, or visited their website, you should have known about it. Can't you just admit this is one thing you really shouldn't criticize the White Sox about?
