No, Mine can’t get you into the Sox game for free though don’t forget that many of the big sports arenas and stadiums do have ticket prices that start around $10. One cheaper alternative is college sports; there are highly competitive schools throughout Boston, and many have very affordable prices for football, basketball, hockey, and many more. There are often many different sports locations on each campus; the ticket offices, at the phone numbers listed below, can give you all the details.
Boston Red Sox Bleachers
Fenway Park, 4 Yawkey Way, Boston; (617) 267-1700
No matter how the Sox are doing in the annual pennant race, tickets for their games are always at a premium. Fenway Park, one of the few original baseball parks left, is on the small side and so most games sell out. Ticket prices nudge themselves up a few dollars every season. But you can always save a few bucks by sitting in the outfield bleachers, which cost about half of the box seat prices; this past year, that meant $8, as opposed to $16. Buy them in advance at the box office or right before the game from windows along the back of the stadium, on Landsdowne Street.
When games are sold out, a limited number of standing room tickets are made available at the $8 price; since there are often no-shows, you can sometimes get in cheaply this way and then try to find an empty seat Be nice about it though, if the real ticket-holder comes along late!
