The Boston Red Sox are one of the oldest, most interesting, and popular teams in the majors.
The Sox were once in the same boat as the Chicago Cubs, both teams had the two longest
championship droughts in professional sports history, until the Red Sox won the World Series
in 2004 that is, and again in 2007. The supposed reason for this drought was because of
the “Curse of the Bambino,” the curse started in the year 1919; one season after the Red Sox
won the World Series, and then sold away their best player Babe Ruth to the Yankees. The
reason for selling was so that the Red Sox owner could invest in a Broadway musical, instead of
focusing on selling more Boston Red Sox tickets.
After the Red Sox sold Ruth, they endured an 86 year championship drought, during which the
Yankees went on the win 24 World Series titles in that time. While Ruth was with the Red Sox,
it was said that he helped sell more Boston Red Sox tickets at that time than any other player
in their history. He was a multi-talented player that could play the field for four days, and then
pack Fenway Park on the fifth day with Boston Red Sox ticket holders while he took the mound
and became a dominant pitcher. As was expected by many, when Babe Ruth left, so also did
the Boston Red Sox ticket sales.
Fenway Park is currently the oldest MLB stadium having been in service for over 100 years. Fenway Park is known to sell
over 3 million Boston Red Sox tickets each year. Accompanying this historic are the extremely passionate fans known throughout baseball as Red Sox Nation. Red Sox Nation is the name adopted by the Red Sox' vast fanbase and the they are known to be the most dedicated fans in all of
Fenway Park is home to the “Green Monster,” the name for the 37 foot high left field fence
that is a blessing for right handed hitters. The Green Monster has Monster Seats for who purchased Red Sox tickets and wish to watch the game from on top of the Monster.
On the other side of the field is the famed right field foul pole, “Pesky’s Pole”. The pole was
famously named after former Red Sox player Johnny Pesky.
Red Sox Nation is famously known as the devout fan base and following of the Boston Red
Sox. Red Sox Nation is known for buying over 18 million Boston Red Sox tickets over the past
6 years, and filling Fenway Park on a routine basis with the max capacity at 37,495 Boston Red
Sox tickets purchasers.
Making a trip to Fenway Park and
taking in a game alongside Red Sox Nation is definitely something every baseball fan should experience.
