The Red Sox today unveiled a series of promotions for home games in April and May designed to celebrate championships and attract children and families to Fenway Park.
The club lowered ticket prices $2 to $22 per ticket per game for 13 of the 31 home games in April and May as part of their 2014 "Sox Saver" games. The team will also play nine games that begin at 6:10 p.m. or earlier.
Fans will receive the first in a series of bobbleheads, starting Monday, April 7, with a limited edition David Ortiz figurine presented by Granite City Electric Company before the Red Sox face the Texas Rangers at 7:10 p.m. The month closes with a Dustin Pedroia bobblehead presented by W.B. Mason on Wednesday, April 30, when the Tampa Bay Rays visit.
The club will acknowledge the Boston Marathon tragedy and the city's inspiring response on Sunday evening, April 20, and will present a traditional Patriots Day game April 21. "Boston" will once again appear on the front of the Red Sox jerseys on Patriots Day, similar to those worn for last year's Marathon tribute at Fenway Park on April 20, 2013.
While the champions of 2013 will receive their World Series rings at the Home Opener on April 4, fans attending the game against Toronto Tuesday, May 20, will receive commemorative rings presented by Samsung Galaxy modeled after the players' rings.
The history-making World Champions of 2004 will return on Wednesday, May 28 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the miraculous season that ended the legendary 86-year drought. Players will be honored on the field before the 7:10 p.m. game against the National League rival Atlanta Braves.
The Red Sox will play a 6:10 p.m. game versus Texas on Tuesday, April 8 and two "after-school specials" that begin at 4:05 p.m., Wednesday, April 9 and Thursday, May 22.
In addition to playing day games Opening Day, which begins at its traditional 2:05 p.m. start, and Patriots Day, with its unique 11:05 a.m. starting time, the club will play at 1:35 p.m. Sunday, April 6; Saturday, April 19; and Saturday and Sunday, May 3 and 4.
The two April bobblehead nights are the first of three the club will present in 2014. On Tuesday, September 9, fans will receive Pedro Martinez bobbleheads when the Red Sox play the Baltimore Orioles at 7:10 p.m.
Also, for those enjoying group outings, the Red Sox will introduce a variety of "Theme Nights," honoring various cultures, causes, and careers, including the following: Youth Baseball and Softball Days, First Responders Night, Country Western Night, and Teacher Appreciation Night. A complete list is available on redsox.com/groups.
