Red Sox tickets go on sale Saturday

Purchase limited to eight per person due to high demand

BOSTON -- The Red Sox, who have the longest sellout streak in Major League history, will put single-game tickets for most 2010 home games on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. ET.

Starting then, fans can go to redsox.com and purchase tickets to any home game at Fenway this season, with the exception of all contests against the Yankees and the three-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers in June. Tickets to those games will be available in a random drawing, to be held at a later date.

On June 17, 2009, the Red Sox became the first team in Major League history to sell out 500 consecutive home games. The streak started on May 15, 2003.

In trying to allow as many people as possible a chance to go to a game at Fenway Park, the club will set a purchase maximum of eight tickets per person.

Fans who requite accessible seating can call 877-REDSOX9, while hearing impaired fans should call the TTY line at (617) 226-6644.

Boston will open its 2010 season on the night of April 4 -- which is Easter Sunday -- against the Yankees.

After the three-game series against New York, the Red Sox will hit the road for a six-game journey to Kansas City and Minnesota. In that latter stop, they will help the Twins open their new ballpark, Target Field.

Boston's first extended homestand of the season is set for April 16-25 against the Tampa Bay Rays, Texas Rangers and Baltimore Orioles.
