Despite a lop sided score for the visting team in last night’s ballgame, there was something to celebrate for both the Boston Red Sox organization and all their fans.
Last night’s game at Fenway Park was the 700th straight game in which the ball park was sold out; a remarkable feat.
Not only is it a franchise record, it is also a Major League record. You may remember back in 2008 when the Red Sox sold out their 456th straight game at Fenway, surpassing the Cleveland Indians for the MLB record. The Indians record ran from 1995-2001.
