The Boston Red Sox will be thanking fans for their unwavering support throughout September, with players greeting fans at the gates, offering the shirts off their backs, and taking selfies on various dates in the season's final month. Red Sox fans have purchased more than 30,000 tickets to every game of the year so far.
More than a thousand prizes will be distributed at the 15 September home games in a special Golden Ticket Program. The special tickets will be set on randomly selected seats prior to each game, and will be redeemable for such gifts made available by the Red Sox and their corporate partners such as JetBlue Vouchers, New Balance Sneakers, an extraordinary Nikon D7200 DSLR Kit, gifts from Stanley Tools, Dunkin Donuts gift cards, a Pizza Party with Wally at Fenway Park, 2016 Sox Pax, a Red Sox Destinations Experience at Fenway Park, Autographed Bats, Autographed Balls, and Autographed Jerseys.
Additionally, each game, fans will be selected to enjoy a variety of memorable experiences, including dinner in the EMC Club; watching an inning from inside the Green Monster Scoreboard; delivering the Game Ball to the Pitcher's Mound; presenting the lineup card to the Umpires; assisting Wally in his pregame ceremonies; and having their seats upgraded.
In a season in which the club has been "Calling All Kids," with more than 51,000 children partaking in Red Sox Kid Nation presented by Hood, children will take the field with players for the national anthem, and the club will present "Kids Run the Bases" after two day games: Wednesday, September 2, following the 4:05 p.m. game versus the New York Yankees, and Labor Day, Monday, September 7, after the 1:35 p.m. game against the Toronto Blue Jays. Then, after the last home game of the regular season, Sunday, September 27, after the 1:35 p.m. game against the Baltimore Orioles, fans of all ages are invited to run the bases.
Red Sox Players will pose for photos in "On Field Photo Day" before two Sunday day games that begin at 1:35 p.m.: September 6 versus the Philadelphia Phillies, and the regular season home finale, September 27.
On the penultimate day of the home regular season, Saturday, September 26, a 4:05 p.m. game also against the Orioles, Red Sox Players will greet and thank fans as they enter the gates at Fenway Park.
A reminder to college students, including the host of new arrivals: Any high school or college student can attend any game for $9. The club's Student 9s Program ensures at least a standing room ticket (or a seat when available) for the lowest price the club offers.
The popular Family 4 Packs Program will be extended and available for every game from September 8-24. Families can purchase four tickets, receive four hot dogs, and four sodas, all for $75.
The Red Sox Souvenir Store on Yawkey Way will also participate with special pricing on merchandise, and Aramark will offer special opportunities on Fenway Park concessions.
The September schedule is also dotted with Karaoke, trivia, and other events on the revamped Budweiser Right Field Roof Deck, which is now open to all fans at the game. The deck and the Budweiser Brewhouse will re-open after each game for an hour and feature celebrity bartenders, special music, or other attractions.
