White Sox offer $29 early-season plan

Getting White Sox fans to buy a package of 11 weekday home games in April and May is near impossible, except if you sell them for close to nothing. That’s exactly what the team is doing, announcing the “Ballpark Plan” that gives a fan a ticket to every home game the team plays on a Monday through Thursday in the first two months of the season—for $29 total. The cheapest ticket sold separately this season is $7.18. The White Sox are offering another package, which includes every game in April and May, for $49. That’s $2.33 a game.

Both plans don’t include Opening Day or May 23, Paul Konerko’s retirement ceremony.

The White Sox averaged 20,896 fans per game last year, the team’s ninth straight season it has seen a decline in attendance. Only the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cleveland Indians drew fewer fans to the ballpark than the Sox last season.
