White Sox Slash Ticket, Parking Prices After 24th-Place Finish In Attendance
Published October 19, 2012
NECESSARY MOVE: The Chicago Tribune’s Brian Hamilton said the White Sox had to “do something to get people to the park, and I think the best way to do it is to say, ‘You can afford this more.’” WSCR-AM’s Hub Arkush said, "It's not that Sox fans are bad fans necessarily. It's not worth the aggravation from the Northside to try to get to that ballpark for a 7:00 start, and I don't know how the Sox fix that. I think that's a big a part of the problem as to whether or not they’re good fans.” Arkush also noted lower ticket prices "change the element of the fan base, and you do open yourself up to rowdier behavior, possibly more alcohol consumption." Arkush: "So there are other issues that you have to consider, and I am sure the Sox will keep a very close eye on it” (“Chicago Tribune Live,” Comcast SportsNet Chicago, 10/18).
