For all those who have asked about the best way to get Red Sox tickets, I have, in the past, recommended the scalper option on the day of the game. Traditionally, it's been the easiest way to get seats last minute for a game.
However, this season, the Boston Police have decided to suddenly enforce the laws of the Commonwealth, and have been arresting scalpers left and right.
So, my usual advice has changed. If you want to come to Boston for a Red Sox game, your best bet is to have tickets in hand when you arrive, or you run the risk of being disappointed.
