Looking for your first chance to buy Red Sox tickets for the 2010 season? It's almost here. And just in time for the holidays, too.

Tickets will go on sale on Dec. 12, 2009, online at RedSox.com, by phone and at the "Christmas at Fenway" celebration presented by Stop and Shop, which will be held on Dec. 12 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Fenway Park.

Fans who attend "Christmas at Fenway" will have the first shot at snagging tickets, but if you can't get to the park, you can go online to purchase a Sox Pack, which includes four-game ticket packages with a variety of seating options. Fans will also be able to purchase single-game tickets to 18 games in April and May.

To purchase tickets by phone, you can call 877-REDSOX9.

Swing by Fenway on Dec. 13, as well, for the Great Fenway Park Yard Sale from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fans will have the opportunity to purchase Red Sox memorabilia, collectibles and souvenirs, including authentic bricks from America's most beloved ballpark, signage and game-worn paraphernalia.

To register to buy tickets or to attend "Christmas at Fenway" and the Yard Sale, log on to RedSox.com on Wednesday, Dec. 2, at noon. Registration will continue through Monday, Dec. 7. Fans will be randomly selected for participation.
