BOSTON (AP) _ Boston Red Sox president Larry Lucchino stood in an empty Fenway Park to discuss the improvement to the ballpark for the upcoming season.

At the home opener on Monday, all those seats will be filled.

On Wednesday, maybe not.

The Red Sox are preparing for the end of the sellout streak that has covered 820 regular-season and playoff games dating back almost 10 years. Not since May 15, 2003, has there been an unsold seat at baseball’s oldest ballpark.

Although Monday’s home opener against Baltimore is sold out, the team expects that the sellout streak will end during one of its 17 home games in April. That could perhaps come as soon as Game 2 of the series against the Orioles.
