Red Sox president defends Fenway Park’s high beer prices

I call bullshit. The beers are priced to maximize profits.

Small beers come at a big price at Fenway Park.

Last season, a beer at the Red Sox’ home ballpark cost $7.75, tied for the highest price in the league with the Phillies and Cubs. Philadelphia and Chicago, however, sold their $7.75-beers in bigger cups. Fenway served 12-oz beers, Wrigley Field served 16-oz beers, and Citzens Bank Park served 21-oz beers.

Red Sox president Sam Kennedy joined CBS Boston 98.5 The Sports Hub’s “The Toucher and Rich Show” on Wednesday and addressed the high beer prices.

“We tried to balance the need to generate as much revenue as possible at Fenway to invest in really two areas, and that’s the product on the field—as you know, we’ve had one of the highest payrolls in all of baseball in our time here—number one. And number two, we’ve invested revenues to the tune of $300 million-plus into the preservation and protection of Fenway,” Kennedy said, via a video on CSNNE.com.

The Orioles seem to be cutting back on Natty Boh at Camden Yards, and that really sucks

“...If you missed the dustup on Thursday and Friday, here’s the abbreviated version. A Baltimore beer enthusiast who is known across social media simply as Beer in Baltimore took to Twitter and Facebook, proclaiming that in the upcoming season, there will be no Natty Boh beer sold at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Even if you don’t like the beer, you can probably appreciate why people were upset…”
