Friday, April 6, 2007
With the cold temperatures and wind chill forecast for tonight, we postponed today’s game. It will be re-scheduled at a date and time to be determined once the weather turns warmer.
Tomorrow’s and Sunday’s games, since they will be played in the sunshine (we hope), will go on as scheduled.
Javier Vazquez will go tomorrow and Jose Contreras will throw Sunday against Santana, skipping John Danks the first time around. Jon Garland will start the first game against Oakland with TBA scheduled for games 2-3.
And for those conspiracy theorists out there (you know who you are), we began discussing the Friday night weather concern before our starting pitchers logges only 7-plus innings in the series with the Indians.
Sox Pride Club
I asked Dakin Dugaw to write a quick note for any SPC members who have or continue to have troubles activating their memberships. He sent me the following:
-To those members who have been experiencing problems with Gameday Audio, all of those accounts (approximately 100) have been identified, and the proper entitlements to receive GDA as a free membership perk have been granted to all. If you’re still experiencing GDA problems, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll address the problem immediately.
-Next week, we’ll be sending an e-mail to SPC members offering additional Premium Lower Box ticket opportunities for the April 25-29 homestand to Sox Pride Club Premier members only. This information also will be posted in the Sox Pride Club member page and FAQ page. Please make sure to check all the details once they are finalized.
Sox Pride Club Regular Members looking to upgrade to a Premier membership should call 866-800-1275 or e-mail email@example.com to make the switch.
-The 2007 Sox Pride Club membership packets – including your membership card – are being mailed now, and all should arrive to current SPC members within the next two weeks. If you do not receive your packet by Friday, April 20, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
-The Sox Pride Club Premier T-shirt design is done, and the shirts are at the printer. We will be contacting Premier members soon with details on how to claim their shirts.
-Finally, we will be starting our exclusive Sox Pride Club on-line auctions and offering new members-only desktop wallpapers very soon.
Please do log-in to the Sox Pride Club member page regularly for membership updates, new FAQ information and access to select perks, such as the postgame press conferences after each home game. That’s also the place to go to see what tickets are on sale, check the SPC message board, review the club benefits and access your Gameday Audio subscription.
We hope that these updates are helpful, and we appreciate you taking your allegiance to the White Sox to a whole new level. We will continue to work hard every day to make your membership the best it can be, and thanks for showing your Sox Pride!
