* Erik Tries To Buy Red Sox Tickets While Contemplating Which Family Member To Exclude

How can a family of five buy Red Sox tickets when there is a four-ticket maximum?

One of my new year’s resolutions was to go to a Red Sox game. But the Red Sox are not making it easy. Their website says “Single-game tickets go on sale via the internet and touch-tone telephone beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, January 28. There is a two-game, four-tickets per game limit on all transactions.” We have three kids. Which kid should I exclude from the game? Or should I leave my wife at home? Or should I stay at home?

I have written the Red Sox to ask these same questions. I’m not holding my breath.

Greetings,

My wife and I have three children and would like to attend Red Sox
games as a family.  But for the second year, the Red Sox are only
allowing fans to purchase four tickets per game
(http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/bos/ticketing/singlegame.jsp).
How can I buy five tickets for my family?

By the way, what happened to the family bargain games, last seen
in 2003 (http://boston.redsox.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/bos/ticketing/
bos_ticketing_discount.jsp)?
Under this program, I took my oldest son to his first Red Sox game
on 09/17/03.  It ended up being the only time the Sox were shutout
at Fenway in 2003, but we still enjoyed the experience
