They are also offering this for season ticket holders:

New for the 2017 season, we would like to offer all Full Season Ticket Holders the opportunity to purchase items specifically tied to theme night ticket packages. Some of these items include: Illini Night hats, Grateful Dead t-shirts, and Super Hero bobbleheads. During the course of the season, we are planning on having anywhere from 12-16 of these ticket packages. The cost to purchase these items in advance is $150. If you choose to purchase these items, the White Sox will send you a package with all items at the end of the season.

Don't they still owe us some statue replicas too?

I think I have all the ones they've had.

Default The Missing Statues

They still haven't given out the 4 statues of Comiskey, Fox, Aparicio and Baines. I wrote them last season about these 4 statues and didn't get a response from them. I suggested they give the remaining statues out on Fan Appreciation Day every year.

You can cancel the Kevan Smith bobblehead night. And the post game show.

That's interesting but also kind of skeezy. If you are buying 81 tickets to the 2017 White Sox (the cheapest conceivable package being around $625+ per seat) they should just comp you that for your contribution of buying the April and May games alone.

Is this a change they are instituting this year? Hasn't the full season package always included all of the giveaways at the end of the season? The original copy from the Sox is so poorly written that it is difficult to understand.

ST holders do receive the standard giveaways at no extra charge. The $150 offer is for the specialty items like the Illini Sox hat. The only way to get that hat was to buy a special ticket that included the giveaway and then pick up the item from a specific location. Usually there are only around 500-1000 of these types of items available as opposed to the 10-20K available for the standard giveaways.

So, I am going to 2 games during this next homestand. Next Tuesday is a work outing. I will also be there next Saturday for the Hawk Harrelson alarm clock night. I sometimes read about problems at the doors on here. Those of you who go to a lot of games, at what time would you suggest I get to the park to get one of the alarm clocks?

From personal experience, if you're anywhere in line when the gates open (90 minutes before the game starts) you'll be fine. You might be pushing it around the hour mark though.

Thanks! And, am I allowed to go into the ChiSox Bar & Grill after scanning my ticket, or would that be just like exiting the ballpark? If I am, I might scan in first to get the alarm clock and then meet friends at that bar! I haven't tried this before, so I just don't know!

Which gates have you guys had best luck with in the past, as far as lines are concerned? I've had a terrible experience on big crowd games on the 3B side but that's usually where I park with the Red Coupon. First Base Side much better luck, but still no control or line organization. Is the RF corner gate still open these days (unlike LF)? People tend to avoid it due to no escalators, but I have no problem running the ramps if it meant I didn't have to stand in line for 45 minutes.

The Sox change things all of the time, but last year, they would scan out your ticket when you entered ChiSox Bar and then you would have to get back in line to re enter the ballpark after you were done at ChiSox.

This would still be correct this year.

Yes, RF gate is open (by the bullpen bar entrance). I tend to always go to gate 2 or 1. Gate 5 is always a mess.
