Overall, ticket prices at Fenway Park will rise by about 7 percent, with the cost of the most exclusive seats increasing from $200 to $250, though the club will reduce the price of about 400 seats in the upper bleachers from $18 to $10.
The Red Sox said the latest price increase is aimed at placing the greatest burden on corporations and other entities rather than average fans. In addition to lowering prices in the upper bleachers, the team will maintain the cost of the lower bleachers ($20), bench seats ($18), and standing-room tickets ($18). The price of outfield grandstand tickets will rise from $25 to $27.

By contrast, the cost of loge boxes, field boxes, and infield roof seats will jump from $60 to $70, while the price of right-field box seats and right-field roof seats will rise from $32 to $37. Tickets for the infield grandstands will remain the same: $44.

''We're trying to rely more on corporations that can better tolerate an increase than the fans for whom even a $10 ticket would be a challenge,'' said Dr. Charles Steinberg, the team's executive vice president of public affairs. ''It's part of the spirit of baseball that you've got to try to keep tickets affordable to the average fan.''

Overall, the price hike is the smallest in three years, according to Lucchino, who noted the team made a concession to patrons by reducing the cost of the upper bleacher seats to $10 for the first time since 1998.

''It's a gesture,'' he said, ''but it's a way to tell fans on a budget that we hear you.''
