The Boston Red Sox are notorious for having some of the most outrageous prices in baseball, whether it be tickets, parking or concessions. When a team is winning, it can get away with charging just about anything it wants. When you treat fans to the worst September collapse in MLB history, have Bobby Valentine come in and make things worse and then trade three of your biggest superstars to the west coast, that luxury is lost. The Red Sox have sold out every home game for roughly a decade, but that streak is likely going to come to an end in April. According to Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe, the team is slashing beer and concession prices for the month of April as a last ditch effort to try to boost ticket sales. Hot dogs, which normally sell for around $5, will be buy one get one free. Kids under 14 eat free and hot chocolate will sell for just $2. But the real shocker is that beer prices will be dropped from an average of $8 to only $5 per draft brew. Yes, only. Those who have been to Fenway Park in the last 10 years know $5 for a beer is a steal. Welcome to the real world, losers. The Red Sox are expecting to sell out their home opener against the Baltimore Orioles on April 8, but tickets remain available. As Benjamin pointed out, Boston is hosting 17 games in 21 days at Fenway during the month of April. Many of those games will be against weak competition on chilly nights, so it’s no surprise the team is struggling to sell tickets. For those of you who enjoy boozing, eating hot dogs and taking in a ball game, enjoy it while you can. If the Sox start winning again, the bargains won’t last very long.
