CHICAGO (CBS) — The Chicago White Sox are offering fans who attend Sunday’s game a free ticket to any home game next April because of the extended rain delay. The offer is not good for Opening Day and the series from April 15-17 against the Boston Red Sox.
“From a competitive balance standpoint and where the standings are right now, it was important for baseball that we played today’s game,” said Brooks Boyer, White Sox senior vice president of sales and marketing ina press release. “We appreciate the patience of our fans, and the offer of a free ticket to a game next April is the least we could do after they waited out the long delay.”
When 2014 tickets go on sale, fans can bring in their ticket stub or mail it in to the U.S. Cellular Field Ticket Office (333 W. 35th Street, Chicago, IL., 60616) where it will be redeemed for a best available outfield reserved or upper level seat to one of 12 games of the fan’s choice.
Those games include series against division rivals Minnesota (April 2-3), Cleveland (April 10-13), and Detroit (April 29-30), and the Tampa Bay Rays from the A.L. East (April 25-28).
