    "Historically, for all of baseball, the second game of the season has been the toughest game to sell tickets for, so it could be as early as that. Red Sox president Larry Lucchino says he thinks the team's sellout streak at Fenway Park will end in April, a month shy of 10 years of a packed ballpark. While Lucchino is unified with the rest of the organization in thinking that a resurgence could be in the making as soon as this season, he knows that the team's record-setting sellout streak of 793 games at Fenway Park will soon come to an end. Lucchino also addressed some media outlets that have questioned the validity of the streak. Lucchino also defended Boston's method of counting attendance - tickets distributed. There have been questions about the authenticity of the record, and whether Fenway Park was truly sold out on a nightly basis last season or whether the streak would be more accurately dubbed a distribution streak. The team is expecting the home opener on April 8 to be sold out, but the streak could end as early as April 10, the second home game of the season. "We have sold 99.6 percent of the available seating capacity over the last 11 years, and our comp tickets are among the lowest in all of baseball.
