Grinder Bash and the White Sox Ticket Office

So it appears that this weekend is Grinder Bash, the party that the White Sox throw for season ticket holders every season. Today is for the full season ticket holders and tomorrow is for the partial plan people, like my family. So after noticing that Night Train Veeck said something about it on Twitter, I gave my mom a call to see if she was excited about going.

Apparently through some confusion and miscommunication, my folks never were informed about the date and time for this year. That's a pretty big bummer, as I know that this is always (and rightfully) one of the highlights of their summer. Free unlimited ballpark food, walking around an empty stadium and clubhouses, yearly Ron Kittle, gameworn stuff! It's all fantastic. Mom was understandably crestfallen.

So I figured I would try something and contacted Night Train. Bill Veeck would be very proud of his grandson. Within five minutes, Night Train had gotten back to me, apologized more times than necessary, and put my parents on the will call list for both days.

You don't usually read good things about ticket offices and the personnel that work in them. Usually you only hear about the front office types when they make a mistake or upset somebody. But multiple times this year the White Sox have come through for me and mine, whether it be letting me show my girlfriend the stadium on an off day or helping make my parents' summer, and I'd like to thank Marty Maloney, Night Train Veeck, and everyone else involved in the operation for all of their hard work.
