Founded in 1901 as one of the American League’s original eight teams, the Boston Red Sox are one of the most storied franchises, and claim one of the most passionate fan bases, in all of sports. Baseball fans from around the world pick up Boston Red Sox tickets every season to make a visit to Fenway Park. After exorcising the so-called “Curse of the Bambino” in 2004, putting an end to one of the longest championship droughts in baseball history, Boston has since added World Series titles in 2007, 2013 and 2018. The David Ortiz Era may be over, but manager Alex Cora’s lineup is stacked with the likes of Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts and JD Martinez, to go along with a top-shelf pitching staff that includes 2016 Cy Young winner Rick Porcello, David Price and former Chicago White Sox ace Chris Sale. The Red Sox also have a legendary home field advantage thanks to Fenway Park, one of the most famous places to catch a Major League game. Although the intimate ballpark’s small capacity (47,625) prevents the team from leading in overall attendance figures, during one stretch between May 2003 and April 2013, the Red Sox sold out every home game — a total of 820 games — for a major professional sports record, putting Red Sox tickets at a true premium. One of the oldest sports venues in the world, Fenway has played a crucial part in the expansion of pro baseball's popularity over the generations, making it the perfect spot for baseball lovers of any age to catch the Red Sox in action. So purchase your tickets on StubHub today and head to the city of Boston to see what it feels like to experience the energy.
