Your guide to the 2024 Red Sox season. ⚾

Fenway Park sign on a sunny day.

It’s time to return to America’s most beloved ballpark.

Hopefully this Sox season is going to be so good, so good, so good. Get ready to cheer at the first home game of the 124th season today against the Orioles. Keep in mind a few updates before you swing over to Fenway Park.

On the field
The team will wear patches on their jerseys honoring Tim Wakefield this season. The No. 49 patches will feature the jersey number that he wore during his time on the team from 1995 to 2011. Wakefield died in October at 57-years-old.

Plus, you might see a few more cameras at America’s oldest baseball park than in recent years. Netflix announced plans for two films: A documentary to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the iconic 2004 Red Sox season and a docuseries following the local MLB team on its current 2024 season. The Netflix team will have access to players, coaches, and executives from Spring Training through the end of the current season.

In the stands
The food and beverage team released the new food and drink options that will be available this season. For those with a sweet tooth — a ‘monster’ cookie is on the menu, weighing roughly one pound, plus Boston Cream Pie trifles made with a chocolate ganache on top of a vanilla pastry cream + vanilla sponge cake.

Then on the savory side — there are Irish nachos, which layer waffle fries with corned beef, Russian dressing, sour cream, pickles, scallions, and cheese. You could also skip the Fenway Frank for a barbecue bacon burger with caramelized onions or a fried chicken sandwich with bacon, cheddar, and Grillo’s pickles.

If you didn’t score tickets for today’s game at 2:05 p.m., check out one of these 18 local sports bars. Go Sox.
