White Sox create 'Family Sunday' fan experience

From White Sox Media Relations

"Family Sundays" - a special fan experience at U.S. Cellular Field - will be one of the new Chicago White Sox ballpark experiences for families in 2013.

The new promotion, which will cover all 13 Sunday home games, will feature seats in Bleacher, Outfield Reserved, Lower Corner and Premium Upper Box sections for $15, Upper Box and Upper Reserved Seats will be available for $10, and Upper Corner tickets will be priced at only $5. Additionally, parking at U.S. Cellular Field parking lots on Family Sundays will be available for $10. Ticket prices are for fans of all ages.

The White Sox ballpark experience for kids on Sundays in 2013 also will feature special autograph sessions with current and former White Sox players, as well as White Sox broadcasters (weather permitting), and the opportunity to run the bases after games.

The Family Sunday offer comes as the next step by the White Sox in the club's response to feedback from its fans. So far this offseason, the Sox have moved aggressively to reduce the cost of attending baseball games in 2013 by lowering or holding prices for more than 87 percent of all full season tickets.

"For many years, we have worked hard to create one of the very best family environments in all of baseball," said Brooks Boyer, White Sox senior vice president of sales and marketing. "As we continue to closely listen to fans regarding the cost of the ballpark experience, the Family Sunday promotion is our next move in creating affordable seating options in both the lower and upper levels of the park. Welcoming fans of all ages on a day that is traditionally dedicated to family time, we hope Family Sundays become a popular way for fans to share a baseball experience together."

Family Sundays activities and tickets offers are a new White Sox initiative for the 2013 season. Similar to promotions from past seasons, such as "Kids Days" and "Value Mondays," Family Sundays will focus on providing kids and families an affordable and memorable baseball experience.

The Sox deserve credit for addressing concerns of the fans. It's still not cheap to park at the Cell, but they lowered the price at least, which I've never seen a team do. The last time I was at a White Sox game I didn't see a lot of kids. Maybe this will change that.

That is an interesting move, I am sure the Sox fans are happy about it. You could get a family of 4 out to a Sunday game for $30, including parking, in Chicago. That is saying something.
