Here's an odd one. How about concessions/vendors in the parking lots. I love to tailgate, but there are times when I just don't feel like loading up the grills and the coolers. This might lead to the set up of a Yawkey Way type of arrangement.
The Sox also have to get rid of the "bum's rush" attitude at the end of the game. Closing concession stands early, including the souvenir stands and shops, the nightly announcement that you can stay for the press conference, but then the park is closed, and the Bullpen bar evacuation seemingly minutes after the game. The announcement should invite fans to Bicardi's and the Bullpen Bar and then allow them to stay open for a reasonable time after the game.
Total agreement on a refresh of promotion nights. Mullet night is an embarrassment, a self affirming stereotype.
Oh, and bring back straight A and perfect attendance give away for kids. I swear this made my family go to more games.
Completely agree. I like to go back to my car after a game and enjoy a soda or two and let the traffic dissipate. Every time, security comes by and tells me to leave almost as soon as I get back to my car. For what? To sit in a line for 20 minutes just to get to the Ryan? What's the rush? It isn't like I'm hanging out there hours after a game.
I also remember once going to the bullpen bar after a game, ordering a 22 oz bomber, and then being told that the bar was closed 5 minutes later. Real nice to sell me a beer only to turn around and tell me to pour it out leave almost immediately after.
