Subject: Re: Red Sox tickets - SUMMARY
Thanks to all who provides suggestion on- and off-list. A quick summary
1) Options for minor/independent league tickets include:
Cape Cod League
Cape Code, MA
Amateur (free tickets)
Northeast League (Independent)
Minor A (Short Season) Red Sox Affiliate
Portland Sea Dogs
Minor AA Red Sox Affiliate
Pawtucket Red Sox
Minor AAA Red Sox Affiliate
2) Options for Red Sox tickets include http://www.smartfan.net/ (expensive,
limited selection), http://www.ticketsnow.com/, and the Red Sox own Family
Bargain Games program
offers 25% of selected tickets (typically weekdays). I ended choosing this
last option and got two tickets for $28/each. I'm sure my son will love it.
Btw, I can also recommend the Spinners. That's a fun night of affordable
baseball (we buy those tickets the day they go on sale) for the entire
family. But there is no substitute for an occasional night at Fenway.
