Los Angeles Dodgers at Chicago White Sox

26 June 2009 No Comment

Once again, I attended a weekday afternoon Chicago White Sox game. This time the Dodgers were in town and the White Sox were wearing uniforms from the 1959 season to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the World Series team that lost the 1959 World Series to the Dodgers.

Obtaining Tickets
I bought a ticket seven rows from the field for $15. The ticket was a season ticket (meaning the face value printed was cheaper than the seat would have cost at the box office) with a face value of $46 ($52 if I bought the ticket from the box office). The guy I bought the ticket from wanted $20 – up-selling me on the fact that it was an “amazing” seat. He was right, but with the sun beating down, I told him I would probably not even sit in the seat – which I did not, until the 5th inning, when the clouds began to cross the sun’s path.

The Game
Chad Billingsley gave up a 4-0 lead and the White Sox eventually defeated the Dodgers 6-5 in 13 innings. It was my second 13 inning game in six days and the eighth longest game I have ever attended (77 total outs).

U.S. Cellular Field
U.S. Cellular Field offers a pizza meal deal if you are looking to save $1 off the cost of a pizza and souvenir soda. LaRussa’s Pizza sells a pizza meal deal for $11.50 (personal pizza) or $8.25 (slice).
For the first time, I used the shower in left field to cool off. The shower, called Plumbing Council Old Comiskey Park Shower, started at Old Comiskey Park and was moved over to the new Comiskey Park.
