The "scalp free" area is outside Gate B at Ipswich St. & Van Ness St.

This is the area where you can find people selling their unused tickets (usually a mix of SRO through Box seats) at face value. This option has better results when the Sox aren't doing so well or if there's a less popular team in town. Monday night's game (5/3) had a large number of people who were unsuccessful in selling their tickets thanks to the O's sweep & the Bruins game. Night games in August might be more popular due to summer vacation & the hunt for the playoffs.

If you can't find decent tickets in advance and you don't mind the gamble, scalp free the night of the game can work if you are flexible (e.g., buy a pair of cheap tickets & a single ticket if a block of 3 aren't available). Just look for the Red Sox employee outside gate B who is running the "scalp free" area.
