I've done my part. I bought 5 tickets for Tuesday's game Pale Hose vs Red Hose. Section 537, row 7 behind home plate. Hopefully we'll bring home a White Sox winner.

Default Still good seats available on Tuesday...

Using the promotion, you can get in 527 row 10 (just right of the plate, only 10 rows up.)

Plenty of decent upper deck box seats left. Still a few lowers also...

Come on guys...we need to pack the place...

Probably the coupons on the $22 promotion. For $22 from Groton Marketing (see the link on the Sox website) you can get two free Box seats AND 15 of those buy one get one free coupons.

That's actually a better deal than the E-bay deal...

Another thought on why exactly they are running this promotion at this time.

The Boston series marks one of the rare occassions when the both the Sox and Cubs are simultaneously at home.

I can remember a few occassions in the past when both teams were at home, and the Flubs sell out, and the sox draw like 14,000, and then the papers run big articles about the disparity in the teams popularity, with a picture of the 1/3 filled Comiskey, and the full Wrigly.

Wed. is always the lowest draw of the week, and the Cubs are sure to sell out cause they're playing the Cards, so perhaps this is a pre-emptive strike in hopes of drawing a respectable crowd on these nights when the Cubs are gobbling up almost all of the casual (moron) fans.

That way the trib can't run some ridiculous column about the popularity gap.

Good point...I hope we pack it in. I'd love to see 35,000 plus tomorrow to welcome the guys home after a very successful road trip.

Don't forget the national media. I am sure that Reinsy would like to see a sellout or two for the East Coast press. In addition, there might be some payback to TicketMaster here. The Tuesday and Monday promos always get huge walk up gates, and thus deny TM a chance to make money selling the tickets (Tuesdays in particular when you can't buy in advance. So, maybe Jerry is trying to pay them back a bit or defuse a potentially bad situation with their ticket selling firm...

Of course TM has their own issues. Charging $4/seat to buy tickets on-line is ridiculous. Maybe for one time events like a Stones concert or something, but for every one of the 81 home games a year? That's just userous. No reason they have to charge that much and Jerry is dumb for letting them. It hurts his pre-sale levels as much as anything else, IMO. Who wants to pay $19 for a seat they can buy for $15 at the park?

voodoo,
Let's not forget that TicketBastard is offering us thier services...namely people can buy tickets NOT at the venue...and with online/print at home....people seem willing to shell out for that convienence....tickets.com wasnt that much better, and the sears machines are a joke....you pay a 3.95 service fee AND you cant deal with a person......at fanfest this year, A LOT of people had print at home tickets...they probably bought the tix right before they left...for those inclined to pay(esp people uneducated on tm's policies) that's abig deal...we should be glad that jerry made this deal, cuz even with the fees, the tix are pretty cheep.....
