Q&A with Red Sox COO Sam Kennedy
March 26, 2013 11:44 AM
A couple of excerpts:
Question: What do you think about Terry Francona and Dan Shaughnessy's new book, "Francona: The Red Sox Years?"
Kennedy: I don't think any book or article or column can change the fact that John Henry, Tom Werner and Larry Lucchino will go down in history as the greatest Red Sox ownership group ever. Nothing can take away from the two championships, the $285 million they invested to save Fenway Park and the $50 million this group has given to charity.
Question: What was your toughest business decision?
Kennedy: Each year deciding whether to raise ticket prices. We do everything in our power to keep prices fair, but balance that with the need to invest in player payroll and capital expenditures related to the preservation of Fenway Park.
Here's a link to the entire Q&A, but it is behind a paywall. Here's a link to our story on Kennedy in this year's Forty Under 40 special section.
