April 9 marked a big day for Boston sports. A hundred (and one) years ago, the Red Sox played their first-ever home game against none other than the Harvard Crimson. Ever since the Red Sox beat Harvard during Fenway's inaugural game, students have been trying to get their hands on Red Sox tickets.
For baseball fans hoping to watch a home-run soar over the Green Monster this season, Flyby has you covered.
If you're looking to score cheap tickets and don't mind the nosebleeds or seats with obstructed views, head over to Gate E on Lansdowne Street two hours before game time. There's no guarantee tickets will be available once you reach the front of the line, but approximately 300 tickets are made available before each game, with prices ranging from $40 to several hundred dollars.
If you don't want to risk not getting a seat at one of the nation's smallest ballparks, single seat tickets (and sometimes pairs) are often available online at the Red Sox website a week before the game. Right now, it's still possible to purchase tickets for the Sox's April 22 showing against the Yankees for less than $50.
A third option for baseball enthusiasts is to head over to Stubhub or Ace Ticket. While there are usually tickets left on these sites, be prepared to pay more than face value.
If all else fails, you can always go on a tour of Fenway Park for $12 and then head over to O'Donnell Field and watch the Crimson "play ball!"
