I was just selected to buy phase II Green Monster tix for Red Sox

I signed up for the lottery about two weeks ago and was initially denied. I just received an email stating that I can buy Green Monster tickets tomorrow starting at noon. I'm not sure what is left but I'm excited about being able to sit on top of the Green Monster. I'll see what happens tomorrow with availability.

Very Cool, I was denied the first time and never heard back.

I'll be going to one game at Fenway this year (along with one at Turner Field, Minute Maid Park, Olympic Stadium, and Shea).

Is this for season tickets or just one game?

If this is season ... I'd like to remind you that you just bought a Coop

One game, up to 4 tickets in Boston. If I could by season tickets this would probably be a good investment.

The same reason why it would be great to watch a game on top of the apartment buildings across from Wrigley Field, it's unique. I watched baseball games from almost every vantage point (upper deck, luxury box, behind the dugout, etc.) and really wanted to experience Fenway from that POV. Last year was the first year they offered tickets and they were gone quickly so I'm excited about being able to get a pair this year.

Thanks!

The lottery is over, I think. If you have a spare $500 laying around, try to get a couple off ebay.

Good luck. I was able to attend a game up there last year, my gf is from boston, so we're up time to time. I wanted to get one of those new tables in right field, but didn't win one this year. Just bought them off a broker we use, when we go to games up that way..

I think the monster seats are a ton better the Chicago rooftop ones, but that's me. However, that being said, I didn't like the view from up there all that much, and no home runs were hit up there, the day I went

It should be much better since you're much closer to the field than from the rooftops by Wrigley. Never done either, but one day ...

I personally think the new seats on the RIGHT FIELD roof are better (although I haven't sat in them yet.) It just seems like you get a better view of the entire field, plus there's that new bar up there. In the monster seats, you're so high up that you can't see anything below you in left field.

I agree, that's what I want to try next..

Not a terrible deal either I don't think. I believe theyr'e 100 each, and you must have 4 people to fill up a table. However as part of that, you also get a 100 certificate for food and beverages.. So 300 really divided by 4.. Not shabby..

The view looks better too I agree. I only really like the monster seats, because you got a good chance of a homer, because of the short porch..
