With what should’ve been the first month of the 2020 MLB season wiped away by the COVID-19 pandemic that’s canceled or postponed just about everything, and without a return to fan-attended games in sight, the Boston Red Sox announced plans to refund those who had tickets to games scheduled at Fenway Park from Apr. 2 through May 28.

“As we continue to evaluate possibilities for the 2020 season, it’s important that we provide options to our ticket buyers for games scheduled in April and May,” Red Sox CEO Sam Kennedy said in a statement released by the team. “We appreciate how patient our fans have been as we worked through the implications of the pandemic on our schedule.

“We extend our best wishes for the health and safety of the individuals and families in Red Sox Nation.”

According to the release, ticket-holders will have three options when it comes to getting their money back. Fans can get a full refund of their purchase, they can receive a credit to their account which can be used during the 2020 or 2021 seasons, or they could exchange their tickets for a future game this season (and with the ability to complete the exchange online).

The release also noted that Red Sox season-ticket holders will have the option of receiving a full refund for impacted games or a credit towards additional 2020 regular season tickets or for the 2021 season. Those season-ticket holders who choose a credit will receive a 10% bonus credit incremental to the total dollar amount of their season tickets for these games.

Major League Baseball, meanwhile, continues to tinker with their plans for the 2020, with the newest rumor indicating that the league may be looking at a late-June start and with a realignment that will create three, 10-team divisions.
