Boston residents can shovel out fire hydrants for free Red Sox tickets

Tuesday February 17th, 2015

There is a lot of snow in Boston, you may have heard

As the city continues to clear snow off of the roads, it's piling up on the sidewalks and burying fire hydrants. A building in suburban Boston burned to the ground early Tuesday morning in part because firefighters had to dig out the hydrants

That's why the Red Sox are offering Bostonians an extra incentive to help uncover the city's 13,683 fire hydrants

Here's what Fenway Park looks like buried in three feet of snow

Until Wednesday, Boston residents that clean off five fire hydrants will get two tickets to a Red Sox game. The details can be found here.

This assumes that it will eventually stop snowing in Boston and the Red Sox will be able to play in 2015.
