So you turn your shirt inside out so you don't get busted?
Why would that be considered a marketing disaster? $20 for a lower deck seat with lower deck access on days when one of the best pitchers in baseball is pitching and they give you a t-shirt that is probably better than the t-shirts grown men knock over little girls to get when the Chevy Pride Crew is tossing them into the stands. Only on WSI would someone find something wrong with this.

While not a marketing disaster, this promotion was not fully thought out. I understand wanting to sell some of the worst seats in the park, but that section is terrible for TV promotional purposes. That section seldom appears on TV and even when the cameras make an effort to show it they don't get a great shot because the angle is bad. It would have been MUCH better to have used one of the sections in left or right field when the t-shirts and signs would appear on TV all the time.

I had my red shirt on and just moved to a better seat, i walked in front of the usher multiple time and he did not have any problems.

Honestly when you just have 5-7K at the stadium, why harass those customers that are actually here.

Chris Sale takes a no-hitter into the 6th before striking out 10 and surrendering only one hit over seven innings of one-run ball

He hasn't given up a hit to a left-handed batter yet this year?!

Default He's Back!

To welcome ace Chris Sale back to the mound at U.S. Cellular Field this Thursday evening vs. the New York Yankees, and due to popular demand, the Chicago White Sox have expanded the "K Zone For Sale" to include Section 155 for all future Chris Sale starts.

With his dominating performance in Wednesday's 3-2 win, Chris Sale recorded his 12th career game with 10 or more strikeouts, tying him for fourth on the White Sox franchise list with Alex Fernandez. Sale accomplished the feat in his 65th start, while it took Fernandez 197 starts.

Apparently it's true .. left handed hitters have gone 0-40 against Sale .. quite a few papers have mentioned the fact that Chris hasn't given up a hit off of any lefty yet this year .. several New York papers mentioned the fact that Girardi was taking heat for sitting Brian McCann, Brett Gardner and Ichiro Suzuki in last nights loss .. when asked why those players were on the bench, Joe said just two words, "Chris Sale" .. much like when teams had to restructure their lineups when facing Randy Johnson, teams are doing the same today, when they have to face the most dominant southpaw starter in baseball..

Sale has taken notice of the "K Zone for Sale" promotion when he starts, and he appreciates the support.

"It's cool. It's fun to have the excitement of that in the ballpark and hearing those guys go crazy every time that there's a strikeout," Sale said. "It's fun to have people in the stands. Every time you get more people in the stands, it creates more energy and more excitement in the ballpark."

K being the standard notation for a strikeout.
If the batter did not swing at the third strike, a "backwards K"
is traditionally used.
Other forms include "Kc" for a called third strike with no swing, or "Ks" if the batter did swing.

Sale understands what it's all about. I wonder what the metric will be at the end of the year on being "above average" with attendance on Sale starts. I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being 5k+.
