The Boston Red Sox have turned to new methods of mustering up fan engagement: Hosting two fans for a night at Fenway Park.
The storied MLB organization is partnering with baseball Hall of Famer and former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling, as well as the micro-rental hub Airbnb, to have one fan and a guest of their choosing partake in a once-in-a-lifetime overnight stay at Fenway Park from September 2-3.
Winners will revel in a game of catch with the three-time World Series champion Schilling, front-row seats to a game from inside the Green Monster, a post-game meal, and a shopping spree in the team’s merchandise store. Oh, and the game on Sept. 2? The Sox's home finale against That Team From The Bronx.
This being Airbnb, of course, there are a few house rules. Among them: "Do not, under any circumstances, put bloody socks in laundry," "no horses on the field," and "4-beer minimum to sit in bleachers." (On the plus side, "shaving is optional.")
To cap things off, the winners' parting gift is a send-off breakfast atop the famed Green Monster. Certainly not a bad time out in Beantown.
Make your way over to the Airbnb site to enter into the contest. And act fast: The deadline to enter is 11:59 p.m. ET on August 20.
