Fenway hosts 600th consecutive sellout

BOSTON -- With a sellout Sunday against the Rangers, the Red Sox reached 600 consecutive regular-season sellouts at Fenway Park, extending the team's record for most consecutive sellouts in baseball history.

The streak began on May 15, 2003, and has since surpassed the previous MLB record of 455, set by the Indians between 1995-2001.

The longest recorded regular-season sellout streak in American professional sports is owned by the Portland Trail Blazers, who had 744 consecutive sellouts from 1977-95.
