Boston-area high school and college students, rejoice. A night at Fenway Park just got a whole lot cheaper.
The Boston Red Sox announced Wednesday that they will offer standing-room tickets at home games to high school and college students for just $9, making it the cheapest ticket in the ballpark.
Students also will have the chance to buy $20 seats during April and May for six “Super Student Nights,” which include themes such as Student Toga Night, Night of Champions and Class of 2014 Night.
“We know that our 2013 World Champions — with their relentless style, cool personalities, and funny beards — connected with young fans,” Sam Kennedy, the Red Sox’s executive vice president/chief operating officer, said. “We want to make sure that this new generation of fans finds Fenway Park accessible, affordable, and enjoyable. It’s essential to the future of our game.”
To buy the $9 standing-room seats or $20 Student Night seats, students can head to redsox.com/student, where they will be asked to fill out a brief form to receive a special code via email to complete the transaction.
Students will receive their tickets through My Tickets Mobile via the MLB’s At the Ballpark mobile app. Once they get to the ballpark, they can scan their tickets directly from their phone and are required to present their school ID to gain entry.
