Are they opening the standard 1 1/2 hours before gametime or earlier for opening day? I tried searching and couldn't find any info.

Is it also true that dollar dog and 1/2 price Kosher dog Thursdays will only be available for 1 hour before gametime on Thursdays??

I believe the gates will open the standard 1.5 hours before game time but the parking lots will be open an hour earlier. Don't hold me to the firs over this though.

The new hot dog policy is ballpark franks will be two-for-one an hour after the gates open (so the special will end a half hour before the game starts). This is for every home game, not just Thursdays.

I called the Sox and the woman I spoke with said the gates will open 2 hours before game time (unlike the usual 90 mins) on Opening Day, which would mean the parking lot will open for tailgating 2.5 hours before game time. She said to call back though in a few weeks as they are still getting everything together, but that that looked like the plan.

Just reporting what I heard. If anyone can corroborate....

Here's how they did it in 2005 so I assume it will be the same?
Lots 2.5 hours before the game, gates 2 hours.....

Like Jen said to me, how great would it be for it to be THIS beautiful out for Opening Day?!

I'll definitely get there early. And, that's Spring Break, so no need to get a sub! :bandance:

3 more weeks!

I figured he would drive there the night before, park outside the gate and sleep in his car so as to be the first guy into the lot.:D:

I just called the hotline and the girl who answered said that the lots will open 3 hours before game time. Just to be sure I said so you mean they will be open at 10am and she said yes. So it looks like we will be there at 10am :smile:
