I seem to remember a discussion here about this and people being incredulous about the number sold by one guy. I admit I didn't think much of it at the time, but obviously there was a lot more to the story.

If someone knows where that thread is I'd welcome a link. I couldn't search it up.

"Suspicion grew around Aug. 21, 2018. That's the day White Sox top pitching prospect Michael Kopech made his MLB debut. According to a December 2018 affidavit, that particular game against the Minnesota Twins had drawn minimal interest until Kopech was announced as the starting pitcher. As interest quickly picked up, it was discovered that Lee suddenly had an abundance of tickets available."

I went to that game. Bought my ticket on the White Sox site, not Stub Hub, and got one directly behind Home (Sec. 132) about 10 rows behind the Scout Seats. Bought the ticket in the afternoon, so I guess they were not able to (allegedly) funnel all the good seats to him.

Will there be any way one can follow this case? Got to believe the team will want to make an example of this to discourage others. And why only 1 count of wire fraud?
