Fenway Park Sells Out 745th Consecutive Regular-Season Game, Most in History of Any Major League SportFriendly Fenway just got a whole lot friendlier as the Red Sox passed another milestone during the ballpark’s 100th anniversary.

Fenway Park sold out its 745th consecutive regular-season game on Sunday, the most consecutive sellouts in major league sports history. The Red Sox passed the Portland Trailblazers, who had 744. Portland’s streak is not active.

Fenway’s first sellout of the streak was on May 15, 2003, in a 12-3 win against the Texas Rangers, the second season of the team’s new ownership. The milestone was reached in the Red Sox’ 4-3 loss to the Washington Nationals.

The average paid attendance during the streak has been 36,544.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
