Tickets for select 2009 Red Sox home games and popular "Sox Pax" go on sale Dec. 1312/02/2008 2:09 PM ET
BOSTON -- Tickets for the 2009 season will go on sale on December 13, 2008 both online at RedSox.com and at the 6th Annual Christmas at Fenway presented by Stop and Shop, which will be held the same day from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Fenway Park. Fans who go online or attend the event will have the first shot at purchasing 2009 tickets through the always popular "Sox Pax", which are four-game ticket packages with a variety of seat options, or by electing from 15 games in April and May. Tickets will continue to be on sale as long as supplies last. As in the past several years, due to the ongoing Year VIII Fenway Park Improvements, the Red Sox are unable to accommodate a large number of fans at the ballpark. Single-game ticket sales will primarily be handled online at www.redsox.com beginning at 10:00 a.m. on December 13th. Fans who do not have internet access or who require ADA accessible seating may also call 1-877-REDSOX9. Hearing impaired fans may call the Red Sox TTY line at (617) 226-6644. In addition, the first-ever Great Fenway Park Yard Sale will take place the following day on Sunday, December 14th from 10:00 am to 5:00 p.m. The Yard Sale will give fans the opportunity to purchase Red Sox memorabilia, collectibles and souvenirs that can become their own cherished keepsakes and unique holiday presents. The selection of items will include physical parts of the ballpark such as authentic Fenway Park bricks and signage along with other items such as game-worn paraphernalia, game programs and other miscellaneous items. Additionally, fans attending the Yard Sale on Sunday will be given a unique online code that will guarantee them the ability to purchase tickets for the 2009 season online at www.redsox.com. The online registration processes for both events will begin at noon tomorrow, Wednesday, December 3, 2008, and will continue through noon on Monday, December 8, 2008 on RedSox.com. Fans must register for each event individually and selections will be made separately for Saturday and Sunday event admittance; however, a selection of Yard Sale items will be available for sale on Saturday for fans selected to attend Christmas at Fenway presented by Stop and Shop. For both events, the attendees will be selected and contacted from a pool of registrants and winners will be invited to come to Fenway during a selected time frame. Each winner will be sent an email confirmation, which includes their pre-selected arrival time. This confirmation must be presented at check-in with a photo ID for admittance to Fenway Park. Christmas at Fenway presented by Stop and Shop will give randomly selected fans a chance to enjoy the festivities at the ballpark and a guaranteed opportunity to purchase tickets for the 2009 season. The list of ten different "Sox Pax" available for sale, all of which feature at least one game against the Rays or the Yankees, is attached. The single games that are available for sale include the Rays games on April 8 and 9, the Orioles games on April 17, 18 and 19, the Twins games on April 21 and 22, the Indians games on May 6 and 7, the Rays games on May 8, 9 and 10 and the games against the Blue Jays on May 19, 20 and 21.
