Striving to ‘fill the ballpark,’ Red Sox lower prices on refreshments in April
|03.26.13 at 9:21 am ET|
In another clear sign that the Red Sox are facing issues with ticket sales this season, the team will be offering discounts on food and drinks in April.
The offers include two-for-one specials on hot dogs, a $2.50 discount on beer, a $2.25 break on hot chocolate, and free kids meals before the third inning.
“We’re looking for ways to fill the ballpark, and hopefully this will help,” Red Sox COO Sam Kennedy told The Boston Globe. “But more importantly, that it be received as a thank you given everything we’ve been through the last nine, 10 years together. We thought it was an appropriate gesture.”
The Red Sox open their home schedule on April 8 against the Orioles. That game is expected to be a sellout, but tickets remain for all Fenway games during the opening month.
The Red Sox have sold out 793 consecutive games (at least as per their definition), but CEO Larry Lucchino is on record as saying that the streak is almost certain to end in April.
