    Luis Aparicio

    Little Looie, turns 86 today, the last living starter from the 1959 World Series team. Only a few role players are left like Lou Skizas & J.C. Martin who both had a cup of coffee with the 59 Sox. Luis was the first baseball player I met, along with Pete Ward in the summer of 1969 when they showed up to sign autographs at the store behind my house on the Southwest Side. As a 7 year old that was when I became a White Sox fan for life. Best of health to you Luis, one of the Sox (and baseball's) best.

    Sox on YouTube

    That Tigers team was a pile of garbage both in talent as well as character. Robert Fick, Bobby Higginson, cheap shot Juan Samuel (coach). The only good thing was that we would consistently beat them.

    RIP Ed Farmer

    This is as good as it gets. The Sox are World Series Champions, and Chicago: Go crazy!" RIP Ed,

    RIP Ed Farmer

    He certainly fulfilled a dream- a kid from the South Side of Chicago pitching for the White Sox, making an All Star game and then being a Sox broadcaster for 30 years.

    RIP Ed Farmer

    I listen to the games on the radio a lot, he will be missed Coincidentally Bill Melton recently had a 5 hour open heart surgery; he has now caught pneumonia, wishing a speedy recovery for old Beltin Bill

    Nopening Day

    Opening day is my favorite day of the year. Started going in college and have made every one since 1984 (yes I am old). My season ticket rep just called me and said to expect an email from mlb/ White Sox in the next few days. I pressed him for more info and he said mlb / owners have a meeting (I assume conf call) this weekend to discuss next steps. I hope that they have a target date in mid to start the 2020 season but since COVID cases are still rising I'm not sure how they can reasonably do that. Until then I continue to watch the rebroadcast Sox games on Comcast sports as well as Youtube..

    Ticket Codes

    One of my close friends birthday is March 26 so we bought 6 lower deck box tickets by first base at 89$ each- with taxes they were $616 in total. More than we wanted to spend but outfield (sec 103) was $79 each plus taxes and fees so we went for the better seats...... The Sox do hold some seats back for season ticket packages and will release them to the public about a week before the game...
  8. Its funny I spent part of the weekend watching 2005 White Sox videos on Youtube- there's some good stuff out there, I need a baseball fix. To me (and many others), PK's grand slam was the greatest moment in White Sox history. I think El Duque's bases loaded no outs inning vs. the Bosox was right up there with Scotty's game winning home run, Blum's home run, Crede's double to win the Angels game after AJ's "passed ball" and Uribe's grab in the stands during the game 4 9th inning. 2005, what an experience.

    Ticket Codes

    Today's presale requires your season ticket account number as the code so if you don't have one I think you are out of luck. Prices have really gone up for the big games. For example, for opening day a reserved seat in the outfield (section 103) was $79 plus fees and taxes so the ticket is a little over $100 each! I think they used to include the taxes in the base price- now they add them on so in essence the Sox got an additional price increase. My regular season tickets also went up 8 to 10% from last year. Hope it translates to victories....

    The White Sox next acquisition will be...

    Id bet on the multiplayer deal with the Bosox. Price packaged with Benintendi or Bradley.

    2020 White Sox Season Ticket Changes

    actually it is an increase of about 8% because we only get 80 games not 81 (Field of Dreams game is an MLB event)

    New Sox Uniform Logo Next Year

    Sox are going to use the script "White Sox" in black and silver on the chest of the alternative uniforms. Looks similar to the script logo the Sox wore in 1987-1990 when they used blue and red. http://www.transformmagazine.net/articles/2019/new-white-sox-logo-goes-the-distance/ Seems OK. I like the sleeveless vests on occasion, wish that was still an option....
  13. I have full season platinum box seats and received an invoice for 6.6% increase, the first increase in the last few years. Also they want a deposit this month (September) as opposed to prior years when you had until about the end of December. I asked my season ticket rep about the changes and all he did was confirm them but no explanation was given Did others see a similar increase? It is the largest increase that I remember; had a similar increase for 2006 but understood the reason at the time. Hopefully the money will be spent on free agent pitching, another catcher and a left handed hitter....

    Field of Dreams Game: Sox vs. Yankees 8.13.20

    I’m a long time season ticket holder and called my rep to see what he knew about tickets and he said this is an mlb run event and the White Sox will not be selling tickets. He said more details at a later date. I’m guessing with high demand and realistically just several thousand tickets available mlb may do some sort of lottery

    Field of Dreams Game: Sox vs. Yankees 8.13.20

    Terence Mann: Ray, people will come Ray. They'll come to Iowa for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up your driveway not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at your door as innocent as children, longing for the past. Of course, we won't mind if you look around, you'll say. It's only $20 per person. They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it: for it is money they have and peace they lack. And they'll walk out to the bleachers; sit in shirtsleeves on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they have reserved seats somewhere along one of the baselines, where they sat when they were children and cheered their heroes. And they'll watch the game and it'll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come Ray. The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.
