In another clear sign that the Red Sox are facing issues with ticket sales this season, the team will be offering discounts on food and drinks in April.
The offers include two-for-one specials on hot dogs, a $2.50 discount on beer, a $2.25 break on hot chocolate, and free kids meals before the third inning.
“We’re looking for ways to fill the ballpark, and hopefully this will help,” Red Sox COO Sam Kennedy told The Boston Globe. “But more importantly, that it be received as a thank you given everything we’ve been through the last nine, 10 years together. We thought it was an appropriate gesture.”
The Red Sox open their home schedule on April 8 against the Orioles. That game is expected to be a sellout, but tickets remain for all Fenway games...

Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron scored while Tuukka Rask stopped Nikolai Kulemin in the third round of the shootout as the Bruins beat the Maple Leafs, 3-2, in overtime Monday night at TD Garden. Rask stopped 23-of-25 shots on the night. The Bruins were without defenseman Johnny Boychuk, scratched earlier in the day with a foot injury.
The first period of action featuring the new lines produced numerous scoring opportunities but no goals. Daniel Paille, skating with Patrice Bergeron and Tyler Seguin, had a point-blank chance midway through the period, firing from the left wing. The shot bounced off James Reimer and onto the stick of Bergeron but the backhander was also turned away.
The second line of David Krejci and Nathan Horton was energized by the...
FORT MYERS, Fla. — For a day, at least, Jackie Bradley Jr. did not generate the biggest bit of prospect buzz in the Red Sox organization. On Sunday, even though the 22-year-old outfielder hit a homer against left-hander Cliff Lee as part of a four RBI day, he took a backseat to another performance that was the most outrageous of the spring by anyone in the organization.
Here are a few breathless depictions by talent evaluators of the outing by left-hander Henry Owens in an intrasquad game:
“Like a videogame.”
“Toying with the...
FORT MYERS, Fla. — At a certain point, enough is enough. At a certain point, if there is a team with ambitions to contend, for whom individual wins may matter, and there is a player who represents an obvious and dramatic upgrade over the alternative, it becomes almost impossible to keep him off the roster.
That’s where the Red Sox find themselves with Jackie Bradley Jr. Time after time, the Red Sox have thrown a new wrinkle at the 22-year-old to see if the outfielder would stumble. Seemingly every time, he’s responded in eye-opening fashion.
That continued on Monday in Sarasota, when the Red Sox lost to the Orioles, 12-9. Bradley entered the game with runners on second and third in the top of the...
