    Last season is one most Red Sox fans would like to forget, but the Major League Baseball team is trying to start this season off with a treat by offering fans free food and cut-price beer for the first month of the season.

    This is part of a plan to lure fans back to Fenway Park.

    Kids under 14 will get a free Fenway Frank, Goldfish and a juice box from certain concession areas before the third inning during April.

    Hot dogs will he sold two for the price of one; hot chocolate will be cut from $4.25 to $2; and a 12-ounce beer that normally sells for up to $8.50 will go for $5.

    Team chief operating officer Sam Kennedy told The Boston Globe the deals are to "thank our fans for their incredible support and commitment."

    The Red Sox are coming off a 69-93 season in which they finished last in the AL East.

    Opening Day at Fenway Park is April 8 against the Baltimore Orioles.
