The Boston Red Sox today announced the priority ticket purchase opportunity for Maine residents as part of Maine Day celebrations at Fenway Park on July 18, 2010. A limited number of tickets to Maine Day, when the Red Sox face the Texas Rangers , will be available for purchase by residents of Maine via an online random drawing. Applicants must fill out and submit a registration form to participate in this opportunity to purchase.
Registration for the random drawing on redsox.com will close at 12:00 noon ET on Monday, June 21th. The Red Sox will then conduct a random selection of winners from the pool of registrants. The winners will have the opportunity to purchase up to four (4) tickets at face value for the Red Sox-Rangers game at 1:35 p.m. ET on July 18.
In order to be eligible for this opportunity, fans must be eighteen (18) years of age or older and a resident of Maine at the time of entry. Registrations will be limited to one entry per person.
Additionally, the first 100 Maine residents who sign up for Red Sox Nation Citizenship at redsoxnation.com will be guaranteed the right to purchase four tickets to Maine Day. As an added benefit to all Red Sox Nation citizens from Maine, one lucky individual will also be randomly selected from a drawing to deliver a Ceremonial First Pitch on Maine Day. In addition to the Ceremonial First Pitch honoree, all participants of the Pre-Game Ceremonies on Maine Day will be residents of the state, including the National Anthem performer and the presenters of the Honor Guard.
