Red Sox Announce Marathon Tribute, 2004 Celebration, Bobblehead Giveaways And More For 2014 Season
BOSTON (CBS) — The Red Sox may be the defending World Series champions, but the organization is still putting in plenty of work to enhance the Fenway Park fan experience in 2014.
The team announced a number of initiatives for the 2014 season, including special celebrations, bobblehead giveaways, early start times, reduced ticket prices and more.
For 13 of 31 home games in April and May, the team created “Sox Saver” games, which will drop ticket prices between $2 and $22. Nine of those games will be played at 6:10 p.m. or earlier, including two “after-school specials” on April 9 and May 22.
On April 4, the home opener, the Red Sox will receive their championship rings. On May 20, fans can receive commemorative rings modeled after the players’ rings.
On April 21, Patriots Day, the Red Sox will wear their jerseys with “Boston” written on the front as part of a tribute to the events of the 2013 Boston Marathon.
The team will also welcome back the champs from 2004 for their 10th anniversary celebration, which will take place May 28 before a game against the Braves.
And then there are the bobbleheads. On April 7, the team will distribute David Ortiz bobbleheads to fans. On April 30, fans will receive Dustin Pedroia bobbleheads. And on Sept. 9, the team will hit the wayback machine to honor a legend, giving out Pedro Martinez bobbleheads.
