- Until last year's heroics when the Boston Red Sox won the World Series, the Sox, had been on a short end of a rivalry with the New York Yankees since 1916.The trials and tribulations of the hard luck team only increased the mystique of Fenway Park, Mecca for the millions who consider themselves part of Red Sox nation. Now that the Sox are reigning champion, and in the hunt for another World Series, tickets for Red Sox games at Fenway, the oldest and smallest ballpark in the major leagues, are even harder to come by. The faithful have to shell out upwards of $200.00 to scalpers for run of the mill regular season games. Some drive up to a thousand miles and still end up on the short end outside the park. But just being able to touch the outside walls and hear the sounds inside is enough for many fans.
