BOSTON (AP) — It’s not going to be just a baseball game. It’s a toga party.
The Boston Red Sox are planning six special theme nights this season to attract area high school and college students. The traditionally slow-selling games in April and May will include Student Toga Night, a student scavenger hunt and Greek Night. Students will be able to get in for $20.
The World Series champs also are making standing room tickets available to students for $9, the cheapest tickets in Fenway Park. The team has the highest average ticket price in the major leagues, $52.
Red Sox executive Sam Kennedy says last year’s fun-loving ballclub connected with young fans. The team wants that to continue as it develops the next generation of supporters.
