View Full Version : Home Game Question

06-30-2012, 08:03 PM
Quick question- does anyone know how long before the game that people are usually let into the ballpark? I can remember several times in the past 6-7 years that I've been in early enough to watch batting practice (even caught a BP home run ball once), but the last couple times I've tried to get there early I've ended up waiting in line until about 45 minutes prior to gametime before they start letting people in. Is there a consistent policy regarding this? Thanks.

90 minutes prior to the game, except for kids days, which is 2 hours.

The bullpen sports bar opens an hour earlier than this on thursdays-Sundays.

My understanding was that we take BP a couple hours before the visiting team does. I've never seen the Sox take BP at home either in the 20+ years I've been going to games.
