The hottest team in baseball this season has been the Boston Red Sox, who have not only dominated the AL East but were also the first team to hit 100 wins on the year. That performance has led to their third division win in three years and some of the most popular tickets to have for the playoffs.
But the real question is, where is the best place to buy tickets to Fenway and beyond to see the Sox try to continue their run into October?
Online Ticket Resellers
The most obvious and convenient way to buy tickets this century is online. Ticket sellers like SeatGeek, Stubhub and Vivid Seats are popular options and will have some flexibility when choosing where you want to sit and how much you want to spend. Playoff tickets are starting at around $150 with online sellers, but that price will almost certainly go up as supplies start to dwindle and the dates get closer.

Directly From the Venue
You can also get tickets directly from the stadium if you’d like, as Fenway Park has options both online, by phone, and at the field on game day. The team has a policy of holding many tickets back to sell at Gate E on Lansdowne street beginning 90 minutes before first pitch. Fans are allowed to line up five hours earlier, but be forewarned that these tickets are first-come first-served and you are likely to either get nothing or get stuck with standing room only seats. Having said that, there’s nothing quite like camping out for tickets for your team’s playoff game at home, so this is the option for the best experience. Depending on where the away games are, this may also be an option, as most stadiums have similar rules.
You can also always look around for individuals who bought their tickets and are no longer willing or able to go. Craigslist and eBay are options here, or check out your social media feeds and ask your pals. You can also risk trying to find a scalper if you are the adventurous type, but be wary that the rules in Boston are somewhat harsh on scalpers and you may find yourself in trouble, or at the very least without money or tickets.
