“They’re exciting to watch, they have a really good cast,” said Lance McNaughton.

April Martin of Ace Ticket said they’ve been busy since the Red Sox won the Division Series Monday night against the Rays. Many fans want to attend the ALCS games on October 18, 19 and 20 at Fenway Park.
“Anyone who’s been in the last few games we’ve played can tell you that there’s electricity there and it’s just catching up and everybody wants to be there, so there’s a lot of interest in these three games,” Martin said.
Astros fan Ryan Duran works in Boston but was flying to Houston for the weekend hoping to catch a Friday night’s Red Sox game.

“I love that we get a chance to play the Red Sox. It will be a good series,” Duran said. “I might have to drag my two-year-old to his first MLB game just to go to one of the series.”
“We have already received a lot of inquiries about tickets in Houston, mostly for people traveling there,” Martin said.
Red Sox officials are reminding fans that ALCS tickets go on sale Friday, but not online-only at Fenway Park.
