About the Boston Red Sox
Boston Red Sox Tickets
The Boston Red Sox franchise is an American institution. Rough, tough, and proud as the city that’s been their home since 1901, the Red Sox have a storied history full of drama. From the very beginning, the Red Sox were the team to beat. In the earliest days of the MLB, Boston was king, winning the first World Series in 1903. They would win four more by 1918, showing off their chops and solidly establishing Bean Town as the home of America’s pastime.
Dark Times Ahead
Alas, despite the raw talent in the Red Sox stable and the already-established legacy of the team, it would be several decades before Boston would bring home another World Series championship. In what became known as the Curse of the Bambino, thought to have been brought on by the Red Sox selling Babe Ruth’s contract to their arch-enemies the New York Yankees, the Red Sox would go an astounding 86 years before another World Series victory.
Despite a number of close calls over the years, fans would have to wait until 2004 for the curse to be lifted. That year, the Sox swept the St. Louis Cardinals in four games, ending the longest drought in MLB history and putting Boston back on top of the world. The team would go on to win the World Series three more times since then, bringing their total record to 9 championship wins overall.
The Rivalry to End All Rivalries
Sports teams are often only as entertaining as their rivalries. When it comes to the Red Sox, this is especially true — the Sox have been in a bitter rivalry with the New York Yankees for literally a century. That’s one serious grudge. And it certainly didn’t help that Babe Ruth – one of the greatest players of all time – started out in Boston and ended up wearing Yankees pinstripes.
Every time the Red Sox and the Yankees clash, sparks fly. One of the most memorable series was their 2004 ALCS match-up, as the Yankees stood directly in the way of the Sox making it to the World Series. When Boston took down New York after coming back from a 3-0 deficit, baseball fans took notice. Many Red Sox fans say that was when the Curse of the Bambino finally broke, and we’re not going to argue with that. (We'd never pick a fight with a Boston fan!)
Frequently Asked Questions
Where do the Red Sox play?
The Boston Red Sox play at world-famous Fenway Park, their home since 1912 and the oldest ballpark in the MLB. Unlike many other stadiums that have been knocked down and rebuilt over the years, Fenway has been renovated endlessly to preserve its iconic location and look. In fact, The Green Monster, the left-field wall and the most famous of Fenway Park’s idiosyncrasies, has been present in some form or another since the park’s opening.
When do Red Sox tickets go on sale?
Red Sox tickets are made available well in advance of opening day for the entire season. The league’s schedule is set for the regular season before Spring Training starts, so you’ve got plenty of time to decide which Red Sox games you want to go to, either at Fenway or while they’re on the road.
When is the best time to buy cheap Red Sox tickets?
Whether you want to buy cheap Red Sox tickets, tickets to any other team (even the Yankees), or tickets to any other event, it’s always in your best interest to wait until the very last minute. That’s because ticket prices drop like a stone just before the game — especially in the hours before it starts — as unsold tickets won’t make ticket sellers any money. In fact, unsold tickets often result in resellers actually losing money, so it’s in their best interest to move those tickets no matter what.
What’s the best way to buy cheap Red Sox tickets?
Your best bet to buy cheap Red Sox tickets is always going to be online. Ticket marketplaces are a fantastic choice for buying cheap tickets from a reseller, as they bought those tickets at wholesale from the MLB in the first place. These resellers buy in bulk for huge savings and then sell those tickets at attractive prices that undercut the MLB. At the same time, they’re still making a tidy profit of their own. It’s a win-win for everyone, especially Red Sox fans.
