I think I know why the Sox do this. Keep in mind, your "ticket" into the event isn't a typical ticket with a bar code that can be scanned. It's a laminated pass on a lanyard. If these things were sent out weeks in advance, there are some potential complications that could occur in the era of scanners, color printers and ready accessible laminating, notwithstanding the nightmare of the passes getting lost in the mail. The Sox don't use delivery confirmation either. I've received season tickets in a plain yellow envelope before. I can see why they want you to pick them up in person.
