The next game for the Chicago White Sox will be their 50th, and those games have not gone according to plan so far. After some major free agent acquisitions in the offseason, the White Sox did not believe they would be in the cellar of the American League Central division at this point in the season, but that’s exactly where they are.
But they’ve exhibited shades of promise along the way, playing better than your typical last-place team. And besides, there is still plenty of baseball left to be played to make a postseason push. Chicago is seven games behind the division-leading Minnesota Twins, who are 30-19. With a powerful pitching staff led by Chris Sale and Jeff Samardzija, the team is definitely capable of stringing wins together.
Looking ahead to June, below are the most and least expensive tickets to Chicago White Sox games on the secondary market according to RazorGator.com.
Most Expensive: 6/26/2015 | Detroit Tigers vs. Chicago White Sox | Comerica Park | Average Price: $77.41 | Get-in Price: $19
6/27/2015 | Detroit Tigers vs. Chicago White Sox | Comerica Park | Average Price: $82.44 | Get-in Price: $18
6/28/2015 | Detroit Tigers vs. Chicago White Sox | Comerica Park | Average Price: $79.39| Get-in Price: $18 | Kids Ice Cream Bowl Giveaway
A division rivalry three-game set takes the three most expensive spots for Chicago’s June schedule. The most expensive of the three is the contest on June 27 with an average ticket price of $82.44 and a get-in price of $18. The Chicago White Sox are going to have to figure out their road struggles if they are going to make a run at a playoff spot, being 11-16 away from US Cellular Field. They’re also 3-3 against the Tigers this season, providing hope they can take this series at Comerica Park.
6/16/2015 | Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Chicago White Sox | PNC Park | Average Price: $68.92 | Get-in Price: $3
An Interleague series against the Pirates is the next most expensive ticket for Chicago in June. The White Sox have fared well against National League teams this season so far, going 4-2 in six games played, as they took two of three against both the Cincinnati Reds and Milwaukee Brewers. Pittsburgh is better than those two clubs, though, not to mention they’ve been playing their best baseball as of late, which should give the White Sox their biggest Interleague challenge to date.
Least Expensive: 6/4/2015 | Texas Rangers vs. Chicago White Sox | Globe Life Park | Average Price: $38 | Get-in Price: $4 | Yearbook Giveaway
On the opposite end of the spectrum, tickets to the Rangers game against the White Sox are the least expensive game. The White Sox have yet to face the Rangers this season, but the team has recently received a spark from the addition of Josh Hamilton to the lineup. Texas had questionable expectations entering the 2015 campaign, considering they were hit by injuries again before the season even started, but they find themselves one game above .500 after an 8-2 run over their past ten games. Additionally, they’re only 5.5 games back of the Houston Astros for first place in the AL West division, so this is certainly an opponent the White Sox cannot afford to overlook.
For those games at home, ParkWhiz.com makes parking in Chicago as easy as possible, with prices beginning as low as $20 for their series against the Tigers at US Cellular Field.
