Red Sox end sellout streak at 820 games

BOSTON (AP) — The longest home sellout streak in major pro sports history ended at 820 games for the Boston Red Sox. The official attendance for an 8-5 loss to the Baltimore Orioles was 30,862. The capacity for night games at Fenway Park is 37,493.

The streak began in May 2003 and includes the postseason. The string broke the record of 814 set by the NBA’s Portland Trail Blazers from 1977-95.

Boston’s streak of 794 regular-season sellouts also is the longest in major pro sports history. The previous mark in Major League Baseball history was 455 set by the Cleveland Indians from 1995-2001.
