I call bull**** on this; I saw Sox employees commuting back from the game when I was in Rosemont yesterday - location does not dictate whom you hire, or downtown retail wouldn't employ people from all over the city.

Really? You understand Logistics? These are PT jobs which dont pay great. And require you to be on call if there is demand by crowd size.

I can bet the majority of employees hired in these cases are within a 5 mile radius of the ballpark.

I only understand logistics, but not Logistics.

They weren't checking tickets for lower deck concourse entry today. The announced attendance later in the game was about 26,000.

I was an usher for the Cubs and White Sox in 2004 and lived in Beverly, which I don't think is within a five mile radius. It was a great part time job to have in high school.

As I recall, the policy back then was to staff the stadium as if there would be a crowd of 25,000+ (they had a large walk up crowd in 2003) and if they didn't get that kind of crowd by the third inning or so, they'd start letting some of the ushers in the upper deck leave early but security would still be around throughout the game.

I don't know how they determined what the expected crowd size would be and I have read threads here where it seems like the team got a large walk up crowd on a nice day and did not properly staff, so they might have changed how they go about staffing.
