How to Get Tickets to the Red Sox Playoff Games
Finding tickets to regular Red Sox games can be a challenge – and finding tickets to playoff games can be truly an epic (and expensive) quest. Numerous online vendors sell tickets in advance; you can expect to pay at least double the face value. We don't recommend purchasing tickets from scalpers, however they are always around on game day in Kenmore Square.
Fenway Park: America's Oldest & Most Storied Ballpark
It's not a ballpark – it's a shrine. Located just two miles west of Revere Hotel near Kenmore Square, Fenway Park has been the home of the Boston Red Sox since 1912. It's the most famous baseball stadium in the world, and also one of the smallest with less than a 40,000-person capacity.
The Triangle, Pesky's Pole & The Green Monster at Fenway Park
The landmark ballpark is replete with legends, stories, and quirky features that can have strange effects on the gameplay.
The Triangle – Balls that land inside this magic zone almost always produce at least a triple play and often an inside-the-park home run. It's a special region of the ballpark's center field where the walls form a triangle whose farthest point is 420 feet from home plate.
Pesky's Pole – Named after a Red Sox player from the 1940s and 50s, Pesky's Pole is the nickname for Fenway's right field foul pole. It was named after Johnny Pesky won a game in 1948 with a home run down the short right field line – just around the pole.
The Green Monster – A favorite target for right-handed sluggers, Fenway Park's big, green left field wall is known by this popular nickname. It's more than 37 feet high and 310 feet away from home plate. It's the highest wall of any Major League Baseball Field and is famous for preventing home runs on many line drives. You can sit in terrace seating on top.
