Red Sox Spring Training Tickets Go On Sale

Lines are already forming for Boston Red Sox Spring Training tickets for next spring. Die-hard fans have been waiting in the rain for hours and the tickets don't even go on sale until Saturday.

There are dozens of dedicated fans waiting in line at the City of Palms Park box office. Many of them even came with tents.

When the rain hit, many abandoned their lawn chairs and waited across the street in their cars.

Regardless of where they wait, they are all determined to see the Red Sox play.

Many fans we spoke say they have been camped out since Thursday afternoon trying to get tickets because a number of games have been cut this year.

There are only 16 games scheduled in Lee County for Spring Training this year. The season is ending two weeks early because the Red Sox are going to Tokyo to play their 2008 opening series against he Oakland A's

"People think we are crazy, but we are no different than people waiting for Harry Potter the first day the book comes out. We are just Red Sox fans," said Derek Dearmond.

The games have been selling out since 2003 and ticket prices range from $6 to $46.
