BOSTON (AP) - A home sellout streak of 820 games is expected to end Wednesday night for the Boston Red Sox.
The team said before the game against the Baltimore Orioles that it was not expected to be a sellout at Fenway Park, ending the longest streak in major pro sports history.
The run of 820 games includes the postseason, and broke the record of 814 set by the NBA's Portland Trail Blazers. Boston's streak of 794 regular season sellouts also is the longest in major pro sports history. The previous longest regular-season streak in major league baseball history was 455 set by the Cleveland Indians from 1995-2001.
The sellout streak began on May 15, 2003 when the Red Sox beat the Texas Rangers 12-3 and continued through Monday's home opener, a 3-1 win over the Orioles.
