Son-of-tebman and I will be there all weekend. It's a great way to spend a few dark, cold days in January just talking baseball with savvy Sox fans.

This will be our ninth year, which is cool, but we're pikers compared to some who've been attending for decades. It never gets old.

Have a great time. I admit, I'm more than a little jealous.

I'll be there once again.

It was packed last year.

Expect the same again this year.

Usually a good time regardless.

We usually don't show up until 2 or 3.

Depends on how bad you want to get in the main room for opening ceremonies.

I'm sure people will be lined up 5+ hours before it starts.

It's more enjoyable when you don't care about getting certain autographs.

The only one I really was looking to get was Jim Thome or Big Frank's. Im assuming that you line up inside the hotel....or is the line outside?

Inside in the hallway that wraps around Kitty Oshea's and extends to the front desk.

They'll funnel people into the seminar room (continental ballroom) for opening ceremonies. Once that room is full, they line up people in the ballroom upstairs.

That's going to be a tough autograph to get unless you're there very early.
You're going to go down the escalators into salon D, head to the right into salon C. They'll be on the 3rd stage over in there (Stage 4).

@JRFegan
Hahn says they’ve made offers that would disprove the idea the White Sox won’t spend at the top of the market if they were accepted, and hopes to disprove that narrative over the next few weeks

Although I will not be attending, just saw an interview with Eloy Jimenez. Very impressive, kid could be a mega star if he continues to rake...

Just curious, is his brother any type of prospect? Sox signed him as well.
