Red Sox Reduce Concession Prices in April
The Boston Red Sox have decided to slash prices on concessions in April in hopes of luring back fans. Kids under 14 will get a free hot dog, Goldfish crackers and beverage before the 3rd inning. Beer prices normally $8.50 will be reduced to $5 opening month as well. There are other concession enticements as well to bring fans back.Okay, now my take.
How about reducing ticket prices so families can go. I don't really care about the price of beers if I can't get into the park first. If I can afford the ticket, chances are I can afford a few suds even at $8.50.
"Lure fans back?" Isn't Fenway soaring with a "sellout streak" still? And finally, how about spending money on the product? I still don't see how the Boston Red Sox of 2013 will place higher than 3rd in the AL East. Win games, you'll have happy fans.
