Will Red Sox raise ticket prices in 2013?

From Comcast SportsNetBOSTON (AP) -- The Boston Red Sox are keeping ticket prices unchanged for 2013 after their worst season in nearly 50 years.Individual prices range from 12 for the upper bleachers to 165 for a seat above the Green Monster in left field. Prices for season tickets also remain unchanged. The team kept prices the same for the 2009 and 2012 seasons."It was abundantly clear this year that we should hold the line on ticket prices," team president Larry Lucchino said Monday. "Over the past few years, we have fallen short of our goals to play postseason baseball. Through it all, fans have shown their deep loyalty and support, for which we are all grateful."The Red Sox went 69-93, missing the playoffs for the third straight year. Their .426 winning percentage was their lowest since 1965 when they went 62-100.
