The White Sox will retire Paul Konerko’s No. 14 jersey during a special tribute before the first pitch against the Minnesota Twins.
U.S. Cellular hasn’t been much of a draw this season as the White Sox are 19-20, and only average 19,000 fans at each home game. But, on Saturday, the Cell will be sold out as the White Sox fans want to see Konerko, who ranks second all-time in home runs and games played in White Sox history, have his jersey retired.
Because everyone wants to see Konerko have his number retired, ticket prices are high.
When standing room only is going for $75, you know this game must be a hot commodity.
On Ticketmaster, the cheapest tickets are $55, but they are in the section 357 and come with an obstructed view. The entire 500-level section is even sold out.
There was such a long line to get into U.S. Cellular that the White Sox social media team was letting everyone know which entrance would be the fastest to enter.

Plus, the first 20,000 fans will receive a Konerko replica statue, so you better get to the park early.
