The Red Sox have been struggling lately, and the attendance level at Fenway Park during recent games has drawn almost as much attention as the team’s play.
Entering Friday night’s game against Celeveland, the Sox have sold out 727 straight games at Fenway Park — a major league record. However, with the team struggling out of the gate, the impact hasn’t yet been fully felt at the gate.
Red Sox executive vice president Sam Kennedy appeared on Red Sox Gameday LIVE presented by UNO to refute the notion on Friday night that the team is artificially inflating the sellout streak by giving away enough tickets.
“For people to suggest we give just away tickets to get to a certain sellout metric or level is silly,” Kennedy also explained in an interview with NPR. “We don’t do that. We won’t do that.”
