Chicago White Sox will reduce ticket prices for 2013 season

Jonathan Daniel

The White Sox will drop ticket prices for 2013 after seeing attendance decline for six straight seasons.

The Chicago White Sox will lower ticket and parking prices for the upcoming season, the team announced on Thursday (via CSN Chicago's Dan Hayes). The decision was made after Chicago's sixth consecutive season with declining attendance figures.

According to an email sent by the team, 87 percent of the tickets will see a price reduction for 2013, including the outfield bleacher seats, which will decrease by up to $731 per season ticket. In addition, parking prices will drop from $23 per game to $20. The team has also eliminated the "premier" and "prime" pricing tiers.

The White Sox drew under two million fans to U.S. Cellular Field this season for the first time since 2004, despite fielding a team that did not get eliminated from playoff contention until the final series of the season. Chicago finished 85-77, three games back of the eventual American League-champion Detroit Tigers. Five White Sox players hit at least 25 home runs, led by Adam Dunn, whose bounce-back season featured 41 homers.
