The Red Sox exploded for 20 runs on Wednesday night in their win over the Tigers. The Sox also tied a club record with eight home runs in a single game.
The last time the Red Sox hit eight home runs in a single game, it was the 4th of July in 1977 and a box seat cost $US5.50.
I know this because I was there and I still have the ticket (right). It was the first baseball game I had ever attended.
A ticket for that same seat this season would cost $US95. The cost of the seat in 1977, adjusted for inflation, was $US21.20.
On that day in 1977, six different players homered for the Red Sox including Hall of Famers Carl Yastrzemski and Jim Rice. Fred Lynn and George Scott each hit a pair of home runs.
