The Red Sox’ sellout streak is in jeopardy

The Boston Globe reported on Friday that the sellout streak at Fenway Park — now in its ninth season — is in jeopardy, with preseason ticket sales taking a dip, prices on the secondary market going down and overall interest waning, even if only slightly. I found this interesting:

The Red Sox consider a game a sellout when paid and complimentary tickets equal capacity, so the streak could continue even if paid attendance falls slightly short.

So, while it still looks like the sellouts will continue for a while, if they have “people named Sully get in free day” or something, it’s probably a good bet that the jig is up.
