The White Sox will be at Fenway on Labor Day Weekend ( but not Labor Day itself )

The Boston Red Sox announced that single game tickets for most 2008 home games will go on sale this Saturday, January 26 at 10:00 a.m. EST via phone and internet.

To ensure that as many fans as possible have the opportunity to experience Red Sox baseball at America's Most Beloved Ballpark in as fair a distribution as possible, the club will allow fans to purchase a maximum of eight tickets per person.

Starting this Saturday, January 26, at 10:00 a.m., fans can purchase tickets to most 2008 single games by touchtone phone at (617) 482-4SOX or online at redsox.com. Fans with disabilities may call (877) REDSOX-9 to purchase accessible seating (while supplies last). The Red Sox' TTY number for hearing-impaired fans is (617) 226-6644.

To help distribute the most sought after games and locations in a fair and equitable manner, the club will hold special random drawings for games against the New York Yankees, Opening Day (Tuesday, April 8 vs. Detroit), and all tickets on the Green Monster and Right Field Roof Deck areas. Details for the random drawings will be announced next week.

Tickets will go on sale at the Fenway Park box office on a date to be determined in February.

Fenway,

Did you ever secure any group tickets for people that PM'd you before for the weekend series?

Nice.

I'll be teaching a kids golf class, but I may sneak in my laptop and excuse myself for a few minutes around 10am.

It's a heads up that I appreciate. Calm down already, this isn't the first time you've gotten snippy.

I hate the waiting room. Surprisingly, I wasn't in there long. It made me think of this song though.

How did you get more than one open? Control-N isn't working.

If you are using internet explorer, the trick I found was that you have to tap Control N as the clock gets to about 2 on the waiting room window until it refreshes. If you time it just right, another window pops up. It may take you a few tries but trust me, it works. I've had lots of time to practice.:(:

Yep. 2 hrs 20 min and counting with 20+ windows. Still no luck. I get to do this crap again when I try to get crosstown Sox/Cubs tickets for the Urinal in a couple weeks. As messed up as Ticketmaster is, at least they don't do this virtual waiting nightmare.

What's even more odd is that no games have sold out yet according to my windows and only 2 games against STL have limited seating. It has been like this for over 90 minutes which makes me wonder if ANYONE is actually getting through?!

You got very lucky Gooch.:tongue:

I was offered some in the same section row aa, but it said that there was foot traffic obstruction. Is that the truth? Or would I have been better off with those seats?

If I could get past the error messages, I'd be on those like a cheap suit.

I think i'm going to give up. Otherwise I'll get an aneurysm.

I'm giving up. That link is probably common knowledge by know plus the VWR people are overloading the system. I'm not even sure I can make it out their that weekend.

We did the same thing back in 2004 and got great seats. I went to the Red Sox board and got a link similiar to the one posted here and within minutes had 8 seats about 2/3 of the way back behind home plate. We then traded some of our WS season tix to a Red Sox fan for his seats by the pesky post. We had a great weekend out there. Fenway kinda reminded me of old comiskey. The only thing I did not like about Fenway was how hard it was to get beer. Other than that I thought it was a great old ballpark with a great pre and post game scene.

I just used Firefox and got through. :dunno:

Any website that doesn't support it, is stupid. It's the most commonly used browser, so if they didn't support it, they'd be losing a lot of customers.
