In what should come as no great surprise, the Red Sox will not be raising ticket prices following the year that saw one of the worst collapses in team history.
In fact, Red Sox President and CEO Larry Lucchino even went so far as to reference the late-season disaster alongside trying economic times when discussing the reason for the team's price freeze:
Over the last several years, many in Red Sox Nation have experienced economic difficulties, and every fan has gone through some trying times - particularly at the end of the 2011 season - as the team fell short of our goal of reaching the post-season
So take heart, Red Sox Nation! While you'll still be shelling out more than just about any other team in the game to see the Sox in Fenway Park, at least they aren't going to be asking for more money immediately after breaking your heart.
