    The new seating chart is out. The sections have numbers instead of letters and they have flipped the seat numbers in the row. Section 103 (immediately behind home plate) has an aisle that is not shown that comes about halfway down the section and people who had tickets there are relocated, although a lot of that area was player guest anyway.

    Changing/upgrading seats is on a staggered system where you can not login before your appointment time, but anytime after that is AOK. I have no idea how they determined the order of who goes first, although its probably based on seniority.

    While I loved the old stadium and have a zillion great memories, here's hoping the new stadium is even better. Go Gators!

    Never liked the aisle/steps right behind home plate. Distracting imo to play....and watching it on tv when you invariably have people coming and going, oblivious to the play on the field....

    Agreed -- maybe that's why the aisle/steps are only going halfway down so hopefully they will not even be seen on TV.

    Whoever it was that designed the Tennessee softball stadium put the main concourse IN FRONT of the seats, so all game there are fans walking back and forth making it hard to see/watch the game. Talk about people coming and going oblivious to the play on the field -- that place takes the cake.

    now it is just a matter of sorting out conflicts between BB & SB, tough to do, maybe radio one and attend the other and alternate :) nice choice to have this year

    Hey, that's great. I know you got shut out last year. Decent seats?

    It's great to hear that SB is so popular that's its selling out the new stadium.

    For my tastes, that's about the perfect row. High enough to see over standing players, low enough to be close to the action (not that there are any bad seats at KSP).

    I know the seat numbers on the third base side go from right to left as you look at the field (higher numbers to the left). Not sure whether that's true for the first base side where you are or whether they flip it. Either way, you should be pretty close to the aisle.

    I talked to @swampgas44 about KSP and the new rendition he said they rearranged numbers so not sure just where my tix will be I'm just glad to get them. close to an aisle is fine my me, my BB tix are right in front of GA and mid way between the mound & 1st base 10th row, good view, opposing fans near by suits me just fine
    Hope to see you at new KSP when season starts, :)

    Ditto! You told everyone your seat number, so I'm thinking we all come by to introduce ourselves and bring you a Pepsi! :)

    That really says a lot about the program. Hopefully, fans will show up or use the ticket donation feature to let others attend and keep KSP rocking.

    Last year it seem a lot of ticket holders didn’t engage the ticket exchange . Hope that is stressed. Need to incentivize it more. Points for attendance. Even if the original season ticket holder can’t make an individual if they resale it or make it available to some other fan, they get rewarded.

    Last year a list was kept of all season ticket holders who attended every home game. The last game a gift was handed out (insulated mug) to people on the list. I was pissed because for some reason I wasn't on the list even though I was there for every game. :(

    I got one! The trick was signing into the sign in sheet so your attendance could be recorded.

    Sounds like a mistake on their part. I bet if you called, they'd come through for you.

    No worries. They usually become dust collectors after a while.

    Sounds like we should have added more seats in the renovation.
