Question:

I am organizing a Bachelor Party for a friend of mine that is getting married. We want to go to a Sox game (15-20 of us) and I was wondering about something. Do they sell Standing Room Only tickets? If so, how can I get them. I was thinking we could all just go early and grab space on the Center Field home run area.

Anyone know if this would work? I dont really feel like fronting all the money for $28 upper deck tickets.

Can you access the main concourse with standing room?

SRO tickets are only given out after every real seat has been sold. There is no "general admission" type ticket. I would suggest calling the box office and trying to get the cheapest available upper deck tickets. They can also put your buddy's name on the scoreboard or a message from your whole group. I think that whoever puts together a group outing gets some type of gift (parking pass, future game voucher) for throwing down so much money on a large amt of tix.

well that would be another question to ask also. i would think so, it really would suck to be limited to the upper deck and not even be allowed to sit :(:

Another option would be to buy the cheapest Upper Deck tickets possible and go to the Bullpen Bar. Get there early though.

You are only allowed access to the lower level concourse and all of its goodies if you have a ticket anywhere in the lower deck/100 level (scout, lower box/reserved and bleachers). There is always at least 2 ushers at each entrance to the 100 level and it is impossible to sneak by...unless of course by buying a few 100 level tix and passing the tickets back :cool:

they do have a bulk group discout...My fraternity has gone to a couple of games this year for I think 15 bucks a ticket.

For a Bachelor Party I would highly recomend a patio party, I think 20 is the minimum! We did that for my brothers party and I used to have a yearly Cubs Sox Patio Party before they implimented the 2 other group rule if you want that series... I would look into that! All you can eat and all you can drink for 2 hours is well worth the Patio fee and the 1/2 price tickets... ESPECIALLY for something like a BAchelor party!

Good suggestions.

To verify: no, there are no SRO tickets unless the game is sold-out (good luck on that one).

And yes: you will not be able to go down to the outfield concourse if you have UD seats.

Sounds like the patio's a sweet deal...
