t’s no secret that Fenway Park is winner and still champion of the record for most consecutive sellouts. But it is a secret that some 300 tickets are set aside for every Red Sox game and sold at face value beginning two and a half hours before the first pitch.

Other teams have learned from Fenway Park that small ballparks can make more money than larger ones by driving up demand. Since 1995, average seating capacity at major-league stadiums has fallen 11 percent, while attendance has gone up 22 percent and average ticket prices have more than doubled.
