$9 Red Sox Student Tickets

There will still be $9 student tickets for high school and college students again this year (with student ID) for regular season home games that guarantees at least an entry into standing room, but could also be upgraded to seats on occasions when they are available. Students can purchase $9 Student Tickets on

Wally Clubhouse

After a popular launch last season, Wally’s Clubhouse is making even more changes for this year.

There will be a rolling mobile exhibit will feature a miniature fiberglass version of Pesky’s Pole that youngsters can sign with a dry erase marker, a piece of the padded field wall that lines the infield and outfield, and various compartments with objects for them to feel, such as a deconstructed baseball and Fenway Park dirt.

Miniature lockers staged to look just like the ones in the Red Sox clubhouse will be installed in Wally’s Clubhouse, and an oversized trunk filled with authentic Red Sox jerseys, cleats, and batting gloves will be available for kids to play dress up.

In addition to the tactile elements, enhanced organized games and activities such as Red Sox bingo, story time, Q&A sessions, and lessons on scoring the game will take place in the space. The Red Sox will also host a comprehensive clinic later in the season for kids who want to learn how to score the game.

And for the young collectors in the family, an extensive Red Sox bobblehead collection will be on display in the Team Store window located in the Kids Concourse.

At the end of Spring Training, Tessie the Green Monster (Wally’s sister) will take her place in the Kids Concourse where she will be a permanent staple before and during Red Sox home games throughout the season.and a welcoming venue for children to meet Wally the Green Monster.

All of this is in addition to the other interactive games and activities introduced last year!
