Red Sox letting fans take batting practice at Fenway Park

Thanks to a loose definition of the word, the Red Sox have baseball's longest sellout streak, but that doesn't mean the team can take its season ticket holders for granted following its disaster of a season.

According to the Boston Globe, the team has scheduled three days of fan batting practice at Fenway Park. Fans with Red Sox accounts get to swing at five pitches from a pitching machine on the field. Only one person per account can take BP, but others can watch form the seats and also take tours of the park and enjoy half-price concessions.

The fan BP will take place Oct. 5, Oct. 7 and Oct. 8 -- because Fenway Park won't be needed for anything else those days.
