Greetings,

Thanks to all who provides suggestion on- and off-list.  A quick summary 
follows.

1) Options for minor/independent league tickets include:

Cape Cod League
Cape Code, MA
Amateur (free tickets)
http://www.capecodbaseball.org/

Nashua Pride
Nashua, NH
Independent League
http://www.nashuapride.com/

Bridgeport Bluefish
Bridgeport, CT
Independent League
http://www.bridgeportbluefish.com/

Brockton Rox
Brockton, MA
Northeast League (Independent)

Pawtucket Red Sox
Pawtucket, RI
Minor AAA Red Sox Affiliate
http://www.pawsox.com/

2) Options for Red Sox tickets include http://www.smartfan.net/ (expensive, 
limited selection), http://www.ticketsnow.com/, and the Red Sox own Family 
Bargain Games program 
(http://boston.redsox.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/bos/ticketing/discount.jsp), which 
offers 25% of selected tickets (typically weekdays).  I ended choosing this 
last option and got two tickets for $28/each.  I'm sure my son will love it.

Btw, I can also recommend the Spinners.  That's a fun night of affordable 
baseball (we buy those tickets the day they go on sale) for the entire 
family.  But there is no substitute for an occasional night at Fenway.

Regards,
Erik
