WHITE SOX STRUGGLE AT GATE; DALEY RETURNS TO GAME HE LOVES
Published June 28, 1996
A "disappointing paid attendance" of only 27,782 was announced at Comiskey Park last night for the opening game of the Indians-White Sox series. The White Sox win brought them within two games of the first place Indians, but over 18,000 empty seats "suggested fan apathy is still a problem winning alone apparently can't make disappear" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 6/28). Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, a regular at White Sox games until the players strike two years ago, "ended his self-imposed exile" and attended his first game at Comiskey Park in more than a year last night. The Mayor, who declined an invitation to attend Opening Day at Comiskey, said he "was upset with the strike like a lot of fans were, but I decided this year I would come back" (Art Golab, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 6/28).
