park has more ads than a NASCAR entry

The Red Sox are tearing up the ballbarkís battered, but beloved bleacher seats and selling them off to fans for $550 a pair. ( Season ticket holders get a discount..only $495 :tongue: )

The 6,507 bleacher seats will be torn out at seasonís end and replaced with new and more comfortable perches

In an e-mail pitch to season ticket holders, Sox marketing executives are pulling out all the stops - including references to team greats - to sell the seats.The team expects to gross about a $1 million from the seat sales, Kennedy said.

Those seats will be gone in 2 hours....that should be one of the easier sell jobs by the Red Sox marketing department.

That's cheaper than buying a ticket to sit one of those seats.

Weren't the Sox seats the same price when they changed to the green seats after 05? I really wanted to get a pair, but couldn't afford or imagine spending that much on a pair of seats. I'd be pretty upset if they were charging the exact same that the Red Sox are charging for Fenway seats.

The Sox seats were $400 for a pair w/$50 in mandatory shipping charges, IIRC.
