Due to the postponement of the 2020 season, fans will unfortunately have to wait for an evening under the stadium lights. However, the Red Sox want to make sure fans can still celebrate Opening Day by enjoying the delicious, affordable ballpark concessions they have come to love.

Beginning Thursday (4/9), through Saturday (4/11), between 11a-2p, fans can order an assortment of ballpark classics all priced at just $5 each. Healthcare workers, first responders, and grocery store employees will receive a free meal by showing their employee ID or name badge. Options include Ballpark Hot Dog, Nacho Hot Dog, Chili Cheese Dog, Hamburger/Cheeseburger, Loaded Nachos, and Chicken Tenders, each including fries or chips, plus a soda. Customers can place orders by calling (540) 302-0233 or emailing [email protected] and meals can be picked up outside the front gates of the stadium.  
"While we are unable to celebrate at the ballpark this week, we are excited to offer ballpark favorites and help families spend time together reminiscing on their many baseball memories," said General Manager, Allen Lawrence. "We are thankful for the many healthcare workers, first responders, and grocery store employees. Due to their dedication and hard work, we will be able to return to the ballpark soon."
