Red Sox 2024 Fenway Park Guide

Regular season for the Boston Red Sox begins on March 28, which means that America’s favorite pastime is just about back. In the meantime, Red Sox fans near and far can begin planning which games to attend at Fenway Park.

The Red Sox have missed the playoffs in back-to-back seasons and posted identical records in both: 78-84. The trip to the American League Championship Series in 2021 suddenly feels extremely far away. While anything can happen in baseball, it seems more likely that the Red Sox will have the third straight season of the same 78-84 record than make it deep into the playoffs.

While the upcoming Red Sox season may not be a home run, there is no denying a trip to Fenway Park is still an exciting way to spend the day. For those heading to a game, here is our top-to-bottom guide for 2024 Red Sox home games.

How to bet on the Boston Red Sox at Massachusetts sportsbooks

With the massive growth of sports betting, baseball games now offer a new dimension for some fans.

Anyone 21 or older at a Red Sox game can use any of the six available Massachusetts sportsbooks to place bets. As usual, the big four of BetMGM, Caesars, DraftKings and FanDuel remain in Massachusetts, but there are two new players in the market. One is Fanatics Sportsbook, which launched statewide in August of last year. And the other is ESPN Bet, which is operated by PENN Entertainment.

Current Red Sox betting odds situate Boston with a lengthy chance of walking away with an AL Pennant or a 2024 World Series win, leaving Red Sox fans with the perfect opportunity to lock in added value on their team.

While those attending Fenway Park can place bets on the game from their phone, there’s no retail sportsbook available for placing bets in person. The only three brick-and-mortar sportsbooks in the state are at Encore Boston Harbor, MGM Springfield and Plainridge Park Casino.

That being said, while Fenway does not have a retail sportsbook, it is still plenty sports betting-friendly. A Fenway Park sportsbook suite now exists inside the ballpark, thanks to a recently formed Red Sox partnership with BetMGM.

Which Boston Red Sox game should I go to at Fenway?

The next step to complete before Boston baseball season begins is figuring out which Red Sox games to attend.

At the time of writing, Red Sox tickets can be purchased for as little as $13, but those are mostly early-season weekday games. For those looking to go to a ballgame on a Saturday or Sunday, tickets tend to start closer to $40. Depending on the opponent and seat location, prices will climb from there.

You could also look at different games that have fun or interesting promotions available. Things like bobblehead night or a firework show at the conclusion of a game can be a reason to bring the family out and take home a souvenir as well.

What is the best way to get to Fenway Park?

There are a plethora of ways to get to Fenway Park regardless of where Red Sox fans are coming from or the mode of transportation they’re using to get there.

Boston has no shortage of public transportation options. There is the MBTA Subway which costs just $2.75 for a one-way trip, with stops all around the city. Take the train to Park St., then take the B, C or D train to Kenmore. From there, just follow the signs to get to Fenway Park.

Red Sox fans outside of the greater Boston area can use the MBTA Commuter Rail to reach the ballpark from nearby cities. The fare is between $2.25 and $12.50 and will take riders to a few different stations that connect to either Boston’s bus system or the Rapid Transit. Fair warning about using the commuter train: some train lines might end for the night prior to a Red Sox game ending; especially if a late-night game goes to extra innings.

The last public transportation option is the MBTA Bus. There are too many bus routes to list that reach Fenway, but the general rule of thumb is to use Routes 1, 8, 19, 47, 55, 57, 60, 65, CT1, CT2 or CT3 to reach Kenmore Station Busway which is within walking distance of the ballpark. Bus tickets are $2.

Fenway is extremely bike-friendly as well. It has a free bike valet for anyone with a ticket to the game across from Gate D. There are also Bluebikes around the city that can be rented and dropped off at Kenmore Square among many other areas nearby.

Parking tips for Red Sox home games

Of course, there is the option of driving to the stadium, but that will require paying for parking which can be as much as $58. The cheapest parking option could be the parking garage on 100 Clarendon Street which is $10.

As always, there is always the option of letting a rideshare driver do the work for you. But expect a bit of a wait trying to hail an Uber or Lyft after the game at the same time as everyone else.

Food & drinks at Fenway Park

No baseball game is complete without a hot dog and beverage of some kind, and there is no shortage of options at Fenway.

From supersized Fenway Franks to overflowing nachos, crispy avocado fries, and even gluten-free pizza, Fenway’s food options offer something for everyone. That being said, my money would be going toward a crabcake sandwich at Jersey Street Fish Shack.

There are cocktails and mocktails galore all around Fenway as well. From spicy watermelon margaritas and lavender lemon drops to the Pain(less) Killer non-alcoholic cocktail, there are options for everyone.

Fenway has all the hallmarks of a classic, legendary baseball stadium, with the added benefit of featuring modern offerings to please every type of ballpark-goer.
