The Red Sox will hold ticket prices for the 2013 season, the first time in five years that the club has not increased seat costs.
"It was abundantly clear this year that we should hold the line on ticket prices," Red Sox CEO Larry Lucchino said in a statement released by the team. "Over the past few years, we have fallen short of our goals to play postseason baseball. Through it all, fans have shown their deep loyalty and support, for which we are all grateful. Our commitment to winning is as strong as it has ever been, and we look forward to the challenge of bringing our fans the winning and entertaining baseball team they richly deserve."
Interesting to note that after a 69-93 season in 2012, there was no ticket decrease. Of course, the sellout streak remains intact.
