Chicagoans, much like New Yorkers, split fairly evenly down the middle when it comes to supporting their local nine. While The Big Apple has the Mets and Yankees from which to choose, The Windy City has the White Sox and Cubs. The happy result for baseball fans is that there are twice the number of options in Chi-Town than there are in most baseball cities.

In recent years, the baseball world's focus on Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa, pitching phenom Kerry Wood, and the promise of October baseball at Wrigley Field has stolen attention away from the White Sox, who are strong in their own right. Though they haven't made the playoffs since 2000, when they lost their division series to the Seattle Mariners, they also haven't had a losing season since 1999. It's also worth noting that the 2000 squad finished nearly 30 games above .500, an outstanding year by any measure.

Getting Chicago White Sox Tickets

The White Sox take the off-season to prepare for the coming spring, and therefore don't offer updated ticketing information until well after the new year. Fans who aren't season ticket holders, however, can be assured of availabilities, at least for individual games. While the team's roughly two million in annual attendance is strong, it's not so high as to make ticket-finding unreasonable.

The White Sox offer special group rates for social clubs, religious organizations, schools, and other community-oriented groups, which is another fine way of nabbing seats at U.S. Cellular Field. Like other teams, the White Sox also offer select premium packages for loyal fans who intend to make 20, 30, or 40 home games per season. Some fans who feel torn between the American and National Leagues can even opt for two packages, one through the Sox, the other through the Cubs, then split each package four or five ways to help cut the costs. That way, when one team gets hot and the other gets cold, it's easy to shift gears and hop aboard the winning team's bandwagon. For last minute deals once a team heats up, turning to internet, rather than team-affiliated ticket sources can keep your costs down.
