Anyone else notice this on the Sox page? Guess they held back 4 front row Scout seats to auction off during the season... Bidding starts at $250 a ticket and you gotta buy all 4 tickets but at least they still leave those available on a game by game basis... I wanna try them sometime... I've sat in scout type seats at other ballparks, very nice.

I LOVE the Scout Seats. Many people here will tell you otherwise, but I feel they're the best deal in baseball. If you have the money, it's worth it

I just wonder if they're gonna have those available for the Cubs series and the like... I wonder what those things will go for for that series...

I'd say for the Cubs series, they might go for something like $700 each or more. A series like that brings double the interest. If you ever decide to go, try going on a Fireworks night that Buehrle isn't pitching. That way you can maximize your dollar.

Front row...$200-$250 depending on the game IIRC

$14,400 each for a season ticket I believe.... Mr. Roboto and I discussed splitting a season ticket is why I know... 177.77 per ticket just for Scout Seats... Dunno if they are more or less depending on your actual seat though

They're probably more if you have the front row. I imagine those are REALLY hard to get on the list for anyway.

If only I had $60,000 of disposable income per year:(:

I just bought four scout seats from a friend who bought season tickets there last year. The face value of each seat is $180 and I got two parking passes as well. This same friend could not attend game two last week so I had the privliege of getting to go to that game.

I said congrats to Uncle Jerry, had lunch two tables from Kenny Williams, and enjoyed myself immensely.

That being said, I wouldn't want these as my season tickets. I'd prefer to be in between the bases about ten to fifteen rows up to get a proper view of the whole field.

My wife bought us a couple of tickets in the Scout Seats for the 4/21 game vs. Minnesota for my birthday, complete with the parking passes. I have never been in this area to watch a Sox game, so I know I am in for a treat, but can anyone share their experience so that I have a better idea as to what we can expect? For example, is there anything "special" that we can expect to experience, or something we should know about or do? Our plan was to be there in the late afternoon...any information or experiences that the group would like to pass along would be most appreciated!

Get there when the gates open. Every minute is precious. You get to park about 25 feet from the gate. When you walk in the gate, they'll escort you to a restaurant area where you eat off a buffet. I've been there when they're carving sirloin and turkey...a variety of salads...and open (full liquor) bar. Once you go out to the seating area you get another waitperson that will get you regular ballpark food along with beer or specialty drinks. If you want like a vodka/tonic you have to go back to the restaurant to get it for some reason. Near the seating area there's a barrel of peanuts, a popcorn machine, and coolers for pop/bottles of water and ice cream that you can take as much of as you'd like. They cut off serving alcohol with the rest of the park. When the games over, you go back to the restaurant area for dessert. Usually cheesecake or something else and coffee.

This is what makes the Scouts seats one of the best values in all of baseball, for what you get $200 or so doesn't sound like a lot of money. Scottiehaswheels.....lets get the ball rolling on some tickets!!

We should go for at least one game though, that would be cool. I believe I read somewhere that if you could buy the season tickets for the Scouts seats you would have to sign a 5 year commitment for the seats.
