Yes indeed! The Buffalo Bisons have just announced that they will play the Pawtucket Red Sox at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts. The date is Saturday, August 18, and the event is part of the Boston Red Sox’ “Futures at Fenway” series, which will start at 1:05 PM with a game of their Single A affiliate, the Lowell Spinners. The Bisons and PawSox will play the second the game of the doubleheader, which will be a scheduled regular season game and will count in the standings.
The Futures at Fenway games also give fans an opportunity to enjoy seating locations they may have never before had the chance to experience, such as the Green Monster Seats, the Right Field Roof Deck, the Dugout Seats, the EMC Club, and State Street Pavilion. For the sixth consecutive year, tickets will start as low as $5.00 (for Bleacher seats) and range up to just $30.00 (for Green Monster Seats, Dugout Seats, the EMC Club and the State Street Pavilion Club). In addition, discounted concession items will be available for fans attending Futures at Fenway.
This is how tickets sales work… advance purchase opportunities will be first offered to Boston Red Sox season ticket holders and the season ticket holders of the four participating teams. Buffalo Bisons Director of Public Relations Brad Bisbing reports that Bisons season ticket holders will be contacted in the next few days with a presale opportunity.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public starting on Saturday, March 17. Buyers can go to this link at the Boston Red Sox web site for more information and to place an order for any remaining tickets.
The Futures event has been a big success in year’s past and should draw a full house once again. For the Bisons, already planning big doings, what with the 25th year at the downtown ballpark and the host city for this year’s AAA All Star Game, this will be another marquee event and first of a kind experience. “We’re hoping to have a big contingent of Bisons fans up in Boston,” said Bisbing. “We’re going to do a lot organizationally to make this special.”
